Find out more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it is the OS of choice for numerous hosting providers.
CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of any 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 will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you get the reply to any question or problem you have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with any other OS. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates that provides a stable software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
When you buy one of our virtual private server
plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the signup page. You are able to decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you would like to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you want different software on it, you'll be able to order the server with no Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a protected and reliable website hosting service for all your web sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we supply, since this OS is one of the options which you are able to pick through the registration process. Since the software that you need to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with various website hosting Control Panels, and if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to manage the server like you're managing a single very large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have distinct accounts for the domain names
which you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature this a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades weekly and will make sure that your server is secure and has the most recent software at all times, to guarantee the best performance for your websites.
