CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you'll be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you might have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that is is longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates which provides a reliable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you'll be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you are able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all of your personal sites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. Also, you can acquire a server without a 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. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things which are included in the bundle.
