CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems available. 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 updating 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 overall price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you get the reply to any question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates which will provide a reliable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is offered with every single virtual private server that we supply and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you would like to set up and run, you're able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you'd like to employ the server for your very own Internet sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to set up a variety of website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also order a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install just the software that you need for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we offer, since this OS is on the list of options that you are able to pick through the order process. Since the software that you want to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports a variety of website hosting Control Panels, which means that if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to manage the server as if you're controlling a single large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to have distinct accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels offer this a functionality. If you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is safe and has the latest software all the time, so as to guarantee the best performance for your Internet sites.
