CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you can customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of all 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 will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is much longer than with any other OS. This means frequent protection and stability updates which provides a reliable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can obtain CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you will be able to choose on the order page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we offer, so you are able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful web hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels allow you to generate various web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you can select a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
