Educate yourself about the CentOS Operating System. Read why it is the favorite distro of Linux for countless web hosting companies.
CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that's is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is frequent safety and stability updates that will provide a stable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating System possibilities provided by our Linux VPS servers
. You will get an efficient, risk-free and reliable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made through the signup process. You will also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with other Linux releases. These options will give you the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your own Internet sites and to control the entire server as one very powerful account, or to set up multiple accounts and give access to other people if, for instance, you want to start a website hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, yet with no further software that's usually set up on it, you'll be able to acquire a VPS without any Control Panel. This will enable you to fully customize the software environment for your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we offer, since this OS is on the list of options that you can choose during the registration process. As the software that you need to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports a number of web hosting Control Panels, and if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to manage the server like you're controlling a single very large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have different accounts for the domain names that you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates weekly and will ensure that your server is secure and has the most up-to-date software at all times, to ensure the optimum performance for your web sites.
