CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to personalize it in any 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 will not need to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you get the reply to any question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is ordinary security and stability updates which provides a dependable software environment for your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we supply, as this Operating System is one of the options that you are able to choose during the registration process. As the software that you want to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with various website hosting Control Panels, so if you get a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to control the server as if you're managing one large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have independent accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates every week and will make sure that your server is protected and has the most up-to-date software all the time, so as to guarantee the optimum performance for your sites.
