Get familiar with the CentOS Operating System. Learn why it is the preferred distro of Linux for a large number of hosting companies.
CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates that provides a great software environment for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to get one of the dedicated server packages that we offer, you'll be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your website. 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 virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. You may also get a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom-made software which you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the package.
