Educate yourself about the CentOS Operating System. Read why it is the preferred distro of Linux for countless web hosts.
CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is well known as one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is a lot longer than with any other OS. This means frequent protection and stability updates that provides a reliable software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating System possibilities offered by our Linux VPS web hosting services
. You'll get a fast, risk-free and reliable machine along with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made through the registration process. You will also be able to pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with the other Linux distributions. These options will give you the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with your VPS - to host your own websites and to take care of the server as a single very powerful account, or to generate multiple accounts and give access to others if, for example, you intend to start a web hosting reseller business. If you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, however with no extra software that's usually set up on it, you will be able to buy a VPS without Control Panel. This allows you to completely customize the software environment for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with our dedicated server
plans. Throughout the signup process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you intend to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from several website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to take care of the whole server like an individual account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to generate an individual account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer you weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on your dedicated server.
