CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you get the answer to any question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. This means ordinary protection and stability updates that will provide a great software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
If you decide to order one of the dedicated server packages that we provide, you'll be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In 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 make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You can also obtain a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom-made 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 our optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the bundle.
