Learn more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it has become the OS of choice for numerous hosting companies.
CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as being one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to personalize 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 won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, which is longer than with any alternative operating system. This means frequent protection and stability updates that provides a reliable software setting for your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you're able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host your personal websites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You may also purchase a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If 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 that are included in the bundle.
