CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as one of the most reliable and secure 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 updating the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't 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 than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is a lot longer than with any other OS. This means regular security and stability updates which will provide a stable software environment for your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans which we offer, you'll be able to choose 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 website. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in a single account, to set up 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 set up any custom software that you need, instead 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 throughout the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the package.
