CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you find the reply to any question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is longer than with any other OS. What this means is regular safety and stability updates which will provide a dependable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
When you buy one of our VPS server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You are able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you want to set up later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you're able to order the server with no Control Panel and you'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a protected and reliable website hosting service for all your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You are able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you're able to choose on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels which we provide, so that you can choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful web hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, whereas the other two Control Panels enable you to set up various web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you can select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
