CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, which is a lot longer than with any other OS. This means ordinary security and stability updates which will provide a great software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with our dedicated server plans. Throughout the signup process, you'll 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 will meet the requirements of the apps that you wish to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from several hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to take care of the entire server like a single account irrespective of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make an independent account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the most current and most secure software on the dedicated server.
