CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, which is a lot longer than with any other OS. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates which will provide a dependable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You can acquire CentOS with each dedicated server that we provide, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you're able to pick on the registration page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we offer, so you are able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a large account, whereas the other two Control Panels allow you to generate various hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS with no 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, that features weekly CentOS updates.
