CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as being one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with any alternative operating system. This means ordinary safety and stability updates which will provide a dependable software environment for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
CentOS is one of several Operating System possibilities offered by our VPS hosting
. You will get a fast, well-protected and reliable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the selection that you've made through the sign-up process. You may also select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with your VPS - to host your personal websites and to maintain the server as one very powerful account, or to make multiple accounts and provide access to others if, for instance, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. If you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, yet devoid of the extra software that's usually set up on it, you are able to obtain a VPS without any Control Panel. This allows you to fully modify the software environment for your websites.
