CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as being one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you can personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you get the reply to any question or problem you have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is regular protection and stability updates which provides a reliable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server plans which we provide, you are able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. Also, you can purchase a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are included in the package.
