CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower 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, that will help you get the reply to any question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is longer than with any alternative operating system. This means frequent security and stability updates which provides a great software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell hosting plans to other people. You may also buy a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the package.
