CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most reliable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is a lot longer than with any other OS. This means regular protection and stability updates which provides a reliable software environment for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to get one of the dedicated server packages which we offer, you're able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host your personal websites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell hosting plans to other people. You may also acquire a server without a Control Panel and install any custom-made software which you need, in place 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 during the registration process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the bundle.
