CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most reliable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is a lot longer than with any other OS. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates which will provide a reliable software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You're able to get CentOS with each dedicated server which we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you're able to select on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels that we supply, which means that you'll be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single very large account, while the other two Control Panels will help you create a variety of hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you can pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
