CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. This means regular safety and stability updates which provides a dependable software environment for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
If you order one of our virtual private server
plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the sign-up page. You can choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you need to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you need a VPS for another purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you're able to order the server without any Control Panel and you'll get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you will enjoy a safe and reliable web hosting service for all your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, due to the fact that this OS is one of the options which you will be able to pick through the order process. Since the software that you want to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, so if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can manage the server like you're controlling one large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have independent accounts for the domain names
which you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels offer such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates weekly 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.
