CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is preferred by many web hosting providers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very quick and takes negligible resources. Also, you can install and run any web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to customize any part of your Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free also means that you will need to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever have any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to find a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every version is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we offer with all our dedicated server
plans. During the registration process, you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the apps that you want to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between several hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can control the entire server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domains
that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to generate an independent account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to invest time and effort downloading and installing the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
