CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as being one of the most stable and risk-free 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 changing the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you find the reply to any question or problem you have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, which is longer than with any other operating system. What this means is regular protection and stability updates that provides a reliable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server plans which we offer, you'll be able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell hosting plans to other people. You can also get a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the bundle.
