CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to customize it in any 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 have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. This means routine safety and stability updates which will provide a stable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

If you decide to get one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you will be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. You can also get a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom-made 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 throughout the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the package.
