CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to customize 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, meaning that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you find the answer to any question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, which is a lot longer than with any other operating system. This means frequent security and stability updates that provides a stable software setting for your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, as this Operating System is on the list of options that you can pick during the order process. Since the software that you need to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with different web hosting Control Panels, and if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to control the server like you're managing a single very large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have individual accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is secure and it has the latest software at all times, to guarantee the best performance for your Internet sites.
