Find out more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it is the OS of choice for a lot of hosting companies.
CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is routine protection and stability updates which will provide a reliable software environment for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server
plans that we offer, you can choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all of your personal sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain name
or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. Also, you can obtain a server with no Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, in place 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 during the signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the package.
