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 protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, which is longer than with any alternative operating system. This means routine safety and stability updates that will provide a dependable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we offer, because this Operating System is on the list of options which you are able to select during the order process. As the software that you need to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with different hosting Control Panels, which means that if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can control the server as if you're controlling one very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have separate accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels offer this a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates every week and will make sure that your server is safe and it has the most up-to-date software all the time, in order to ensure the best performance for your web sites.
