Discover more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it has become the OS of choice for a lot of hosting providers.
CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is much longer than with any alternative operating system. This means frequent protection and stability updates that provides a stable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, because this Operating System is one of the options which you'll be able to choose during the registration process. As the software that you intend to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a variety of website hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you can control the server like you're controlling a single very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have different accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates every week and will make sure that your server is protected and has the most up-to-date software all the time, so as to guarantee the optimum performance for your Internet sites.
