Learn more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it's the OS preferred by several hosting companies.
CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading 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 are able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that's is much longer than with any other operating system. What this means is routine security and stability updates which will provide a reliable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we offer, since this Operating System is one of the options which you're able to choose during the order process. As the software that you would like to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with various hosting Control Panels, so if you acquire a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to manage the server like you're managing a single very large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have different accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades every week and will make sure that your server is safe and has the most up-to-date software all the time, so as to ensure the best possible performance for your websites.
