CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's well known as one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to personalize it in any 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 have to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that's is longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is regular security and stability updates which provides a dependable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with all our dedicated server plans. Throughout the registration process, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the apps that you'd like to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from several website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to manage the whole server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate an individual account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not choose any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't need to spend time and effort downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most secure software on your dedicated server.
