CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you find the answer to any question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is frequent security and stability updates that will provide a reliable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You're able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you're able to choose on our registration page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we supply, so you can select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to set up multiple hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
