CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating 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 more affordable than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you get the answer to any question or problem you have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that's is longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates which provides a stable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
If you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server
plans that we provide, you'll be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all your personal websites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain name
or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. You may also buy a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
