CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top 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're able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, which is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is frequent security and stability updates which provides a dependable software setting for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with our dedicated server plans. During the signup process, you will be able to choose between 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 would like to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from several web hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can control the whole server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to create a different account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most secure software on the dedicated server.
