Get familiar with the CentOS Operating System. Learn why it is the preferred distro of Linux for a number of web hosts.
CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as being one of the most reliable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you might have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that is is much longer than with any other operating system. What this means is ordinary 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
When you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you can select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all of your personal websites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You may also get a server with no Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the package.
