Get familiar with the CentOS Operating System. Find out why it is the favorite distro of Linux for the majority of web hosting companies.
CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's well known as one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you get the answer to any question or problem you may have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is a lot longer than with any other OS. What this means is regular security and stability updates that provides a dependable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server plans that we supply, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all your personal websites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. Also, you can obtain a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the package.
