CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you'll be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program 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 need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that is is much longer than with any other operating system. This means regular security and stability updates that will provide a great software setting for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we supply with our dedicated server packages. Throughout the signup process, you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the applications that you want to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from various website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can take care of the whole server like just a single account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate an individual account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote effort and time downloading and installing the most current and most protected software on the dedicated server.
