Apart from the fact that it's freely distributed, Linux's functionality, adaptability and robustness, has made it the main alternative for proprietary Unix and Microsoft operating systems. IBM, Hewlett-Packard and other giants of the computing world have embraced Linux and support its ongoing development. More than a decade after its initial release, Linux is being adopted worldwide as a server platform primarily. Its use as a home and office desktop operating system is also on the rise. The operating system can also be incorporated directly into microchips in a process called "embedding" and is increasingly being used this way in appliances and devices.

CentOS, which stands for Community ENTerprise Operating System, is the most popular choice of all the Linux distribution out on the web.Based on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) server, our CentOS Dedicated server is a free operating system that is supported by an avid online community. It is the result of a collection of open source developers and users collaborating together to create a quality Linux solution available to anyone, completely supported by donations.
The two environments have plenty of overlapping qualities, but most importantly Dedicated Server render greater security, customization and excellent availability. With granular control, you are free to customize hardware components like disk space or RAM and installation of unique operating systems. More substantial computing power (CPUs) and disk space allow Dedicated servers enhanced performance for high amounts of traffic. When uptime and performance are critical to your business Dedicated Servers are second to none for hosting.
A dedicated server is just like any other kind of server, but only one individual or company is hosting their site(s) on it. Rather than sharing bandwidth, storage, RAM, et cetera, as you would in a shared hosting scenario, you get all of the server resources allocated to you when you sign up for dedicated hosting. For the sake of total clarity, virtual private server (VPS) hosting is when a single server is partitioned to act as several dedicated servers. You’re still essentially sharing with neighbors, but if any one of them misuses the hosting environment, you’re not in danger.
You or your staff could create reports, monitoring tools and other services for your dedicated servers, but it costs time and money. With GalaxyVisions' managed services, you get the information and tools you need at a fraction of the cost by leveraging the experience of GV's skilled team of engineers and technicians. With GV's tools, you will instantly understand your server's performance and be able to review your operations at GalaxyVisions with ease.

By default, yum, the CentOS package manager, has fewer packages that you can install compared to some other OS's such as Ubuntu. The plus side of this is that limiting the scope of what software can be automatically installed may improve compatibility and stability concerns. The downside is that it is an extra inconvenience to compile and install software manually if you do need software that cannot be installed by yum.

Right off the bat, we should explain the difference between cheap and value hosting. Although we’ll occasionally cover free hosting services, we usually encourage looking past the price tag and examining the bang for your buck. In most cases, spending a few extra dollars unlocks a ton of useful features that will streamline your hosting experience and make a big difference in site performance and visitor experience.
We do offer hardware customizations on existing Dedicated servers but it is recommended you add them on at the initial purchase as any hardware changes once the server is active would result in downtime for your server. The cost varies depending on the upgrades. Contact our Sales team for prices. Hardware configuration options differ depending on data center location.
Linux Dedicated servers represent a great deal of all the dedicated servers in the world, due to the several advantages which Linux has as a server Operating System. Linux Dedicated Servers are more stable and secure, cost less than other dedicated servers and are perfect for any Web Hosting enterprise. Linux Dedicated Server web hosting accounts now represent the greater part of all the web hosting accounts in the world.
Mr. Lane Livingston, CEO of NetHosting, stated, “As the efficiency benefits offered in virtualized hosting environments receive greater publicity, the prospect of migration and other reservations may still deter some enterprises from switching over. But cutting-edge operating systems like Red Hat’s RHEL 6.2 are proving the reliability of innovative hosting options like the cloud in both security and overall stability, which is why Red Hat’s newest release is fully supported on our products.”

Dedicated web hosting is an attractive option for people and companies who require a rock-solid website foundation. Sure, it's more expensive than shared web hosting, but you get greater reliability and more flexibility in exchange for the additional money that you pay. We've reviewed many dedicated hosting services and included our nine favorites in this guide. The chart above gives you a quick overview of the features you can find with each service. It includes pricing, hardware specs, data caps, and other pertinent information. If you want a more in-depth look at dedicated web hosting services, take a look at the blurbs—and links to full reviews—below.
Repeat after me: There is no such thing as a free dedicated server — not one that can handle all the things that dedicated customers typically need their server to process, anyway. If you fall into one of the free dedicated hosting traps, you’re going to wind up so frustrated by the resource limitations and downtime issues, or your credit card is going to be charged out the you-know-what when the free trial expires in a week. Turn your attention to low-cost, high-quality options instead.
Additionally, you'll want a web hosting service that offers Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) if you plan to sell products. Here's why: An SSL connection encrypts the data that travels between your site and users' web browsers, thus safeguarding the transmission of purchasing information. You've probably seen a green padlock in your web browser's address bar while logging into your online bank account or making online purchases. It's a symbol of trust. Some companies include a free SSL certificate when you sign up for a hosting plan, while others charge close to $100. You can save some money by shopping around for the services that offer the cheapest SSL plans.

We provide IP addresses free of charge, but on an as-needed basis. ARIN rules require actual usage of an IP address so you must submit the domain name associated with any additional IP addresses. Additional IP addresses above the included IPs are available - please call our sales staff for pricing depending on number of IPs required. Limitations apply and this is no guarantee of availability.

CentOS is an abbrevation for Community ENTerprise Operating System. The source code for CentOS is based on the commercial distribution Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). RHEL is a commercial based product, but it is licensed under the GNU General Public License. This allows CentOS developers to use a commercially built operating system freely because it is open source. CentOS' commercial backing increases the rate of updates released making it an extremely powerful, stable and secure operating system. These are just a few of the reasons why CentOS is one of the most popular choices among all of the available Linux OS variations.
