CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of any of them. It is 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 much lower than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates which provides a great software environment for your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You can acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we provide, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you're able to choose on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply, so that you will be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to generate multiple web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you are able to pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
