CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of any 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 total price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you find the reply to any question or problem you may have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is regular protection and stability updates that will provide a dependable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with all of our dedicated server packages. During the sign-up process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you wish to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from several website hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you'll be able to manage the whole server like an individual account whatever the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to generate a separate account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote time and effort downloading and setting up the latest and most protected software on the dedicated server.
