CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most stable and risk-free 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 program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you find the reply to any question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is regular safety and stability updates that will provide a reliable software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, due to the fact that this Operating System is one of the options that you are able to pick through the registration process. As the software that you want to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with numerous hosting Control Panels, so if you get a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to control the server like you're managing one large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have distinct accounts for the domain names that you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels feature such a functionality. In case you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades every week and will make sure that your server is protected and it has the most recent software at all times, to ensure the optimum performance for your Internet sites.
