CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll 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 is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is longer than with any other OS. This means routine safety and stability updates which will provide a dependable software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
When you acquire one of our VPS server
packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the signup page. You'll be able to decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you want to set up later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you want different software on it, you will be able to order the server without Control Panel and you'll get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a safe and reliable web hosting service for all of your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, as this OS is on the list of options that you are able to pick during the order process. As the software that you wish to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with various website hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to control the server as if you're controlling one large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have individual accounts for the domains
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 on a weekly basis and will make sure that your server is protected and it has the most recent software at all times, to guarantee the best performance for your sites.
