CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates which provides a great software environment for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans that we provide, you are able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all your personal websites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. You may also obtain a server without a Control Panel and install any custom-made software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things which are included in the package.
