CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as being one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you get the answer to any question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that is is longer than with any other operating system. This means regular protection and stability updates that will provide a great software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we supply, because this Operating System is one of the options which you can pick through the order process. Since the software that you intend to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with various website hosting Control Panels, and if you get a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to manage the server as if you're managing one very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have different accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels feature this a functionality. In case you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates weekly and will make sure that your server is safe and it has the latest software all the time, to guarantee the best performance for your sites.
