CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering 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 much lower than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you find the answer to any question or problem you might have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that is is much longer than with any other operating system. What this means is routine protection and stability updates that will provide a reliable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You're able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you're able to pick on the order page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we offer, so that you can choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will allow you to set up various hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you'll be able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
