Inform yourself about the CentOS Operating System. Read why it is the favorite distro of Linux for many web hosting companies.
CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is well known as being one of the most dependable and risk-free 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 program 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, which means that the total price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is much longer than with any other operating system. What this means is frequent safety and stability updates that provides a stable software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with all our dedicated server packages. Throughout the registration process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the applications that you want to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between several website hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can control the entire server like an individual account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can generate a different account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also supply weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
