Discover more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it's the OS preferred by many hosting providers.
CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as being one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you get the answer to any question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is frequent security and stability updates that provides a dependable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is offered with every single virtual private server
that we provide and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you would like to install and run, you're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you'd like to use the server for your personal web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up a number of web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also get a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install only the software which you want for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You're able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server
that we provide, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you are able to choose on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we offer, which means that you will be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful web hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to generate multiple hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you can pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
