CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with any other OS. What this means is ordinary protection and stability updates which will provide a stable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
When you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server plans which we offer, you will be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your website. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you're able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all your personal websites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell hosting plans to other people. You can also obtain a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, instead 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 registration process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the package.
