See why a large number of hosting suppliers go with CentOS as their first pick for a hosting server OS.
CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most reliable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of all of them. It's 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'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you get the answer to any question or problem you may have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, which is longer than with any other OS. This means routine protection and stability updates that provides a great software environment for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You're able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server
that we supply, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you are able to choose on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer, so that you are able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful web hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, while the other two Control Panels will allow you to create various hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you're able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. After that you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
