CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as being one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall 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 working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you may have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is longer than with any other operating system. This means regular protection and stability updates which will provide a reliable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
If you decide to order one of the dedicated server packages that we provide, you will be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your website. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell hosting packages to other people. Also, you can purchase a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the package.
