CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's well known as being one of the most dependable and risk-free 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 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 will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. This means regular safety and stability updates that provides a reliable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
When you acquire one of our VPS server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the sign-up page. You are able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you need to install later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you want different software on it, you're able to order your server without Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a safe and reliable web hosting service for all your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we offer, due to the fact that this OS is on the list of options which you are able to select during the registration process. Since the software that you want to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with numerous website hosting Control Panels, and if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you can manage the server as if you're managing one large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have distinct accounts for the domain names that you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels offer this a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is safe and it has the most recent software at all times, so as to ensure the optimum performance for your web sites.
