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 one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower than 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 get the reply to any question or problem you might have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is much longer than with any other operating system. What this means is routine protection and stability updates that will provide a stable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans which we provide, you'll be able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host your personal websites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. Also, you can acquire a server without a Control Panel and install any custom-made software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the bundle.
