CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you can customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you find the answer to any question or problem you may have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, which is longer than with any other operating system. This means regular protection and stability updates that provides a dependable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is accessible with every single virtual private server that we offer and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you'd like to set up and run, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three web hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you wish to use the server for your very own Internet sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up a variety of web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also order a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can set up just the software that you want for your apps.
