CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of any 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'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, which is longer than with any other operating system. This means frequent safety and stability updates that will provide a great software setting for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with all our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the applications that you would like to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to take care of the server like a single account whatever the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to create an independent account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also supply weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't have to invest time and effort downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on your dedicated server.
