CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as being one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in whatever 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 will not need to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower than 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, which will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is a lot longer than with any other operating system. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates that will provide a stable software setting for your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you will be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all your personal sites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You can also get a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the bundle.
