CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is well known as being one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the reply to any question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is a lot longer than with any other operating system. This means ordinary safety and stability updates that provides a stable software environment for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you decide to get one of the dedicated server plans that we supply, you can choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host your personal sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You can also acquire a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If 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 which are included in the package.
