CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is longer than with any other operating system. What this means is regular safety and stability updates which will provide a reliable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to order one of the dedicated server packages that we offer, you're able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it's 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 which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal websites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You may also acquire a server devoid of Control Panel and install 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 our optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the package.
