CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's well known as being one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have 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 lower as compared to the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you get the reply to any question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that's is much longer than with any other OS. This means routine security and stability updates which will provide a stable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server
packages which we provide, you'll be able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all of your personal sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain
or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You can also buy a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom 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 the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the bundle.
