CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is well known as one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is a lot longer than with any other operating system. What this means is ordinary protection and stability updates which will provide a reliable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans that we supply, you will be able to select 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 site. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you can use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host your personal websites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell hosting plans to other people. You may also buy a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the package.
