CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you can customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you find the reply to any question or problem you may have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, which is much longer than with any other OS. What this means is regular security and stability updates which will provide a stable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
You'll be able to pick CentOS for your new virtual private server throughout the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the chance to select the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you wish to set up and manage. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to create a separate account for each domain hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domain names together and control the entire server as one single account. You will also have the option to acquire your VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however with no extra software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you'll be able to set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You are able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we supply, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you are able to select on the registration page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we supply, which means that you're able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful web hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to generate a variety of hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you can select a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
