CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total 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 stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, which is a lot longer than with any other OS. What this means is regular protection and stability updates which provides a stable software environment for your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you can choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you can use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all of your personal websites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell hosting plans to other people. Also, you can buy a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the bundle.
