Educate yourself about the CentOS Operating System. Learn why it is the preferred distro of Linux for numerous web hosting companies.
CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most reliable and risk-free 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 changing the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of 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 as compared to the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any alternative OS. This means ordinary safety and stability updates which will provide a stable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
When you order one of our virtual private server
packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the registration page. You're able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you would like to set up later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you can choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you are able to order the server without Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a protected and reliable web hosting service for all your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with all of our dedicated server
packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you'd like to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between a couple of web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to manage the server like just a single account whatever the number of domains
which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to create an individual account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to spend time and effort downloading and installing the most recent and most secure software on the dedicated server.
