CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is longer than with any alternative operating system. This means routine safety and stability updates that provides a great software environment for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to get CentOS with each dedicated server which we offer, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options which you will be able to pick on our order page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we supply, so that you will be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful web hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will allow you to make various website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
