CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you can customize 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, meaning that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server working with another 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 may have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is frequent safety and stability updates which will provide a great software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server plans which we provide, you will be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell hosting plans to other people. Also, you can obtain a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software that 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 during the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the bundle.
