CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It is preferred by a large number of web hosting suppliers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also really quick and takes minimal system resources. Also, you're able to set up and run any web application, as long as it can function on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to update any part of your Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free means that you will have to pay only for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to find a solution very quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, which means that you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you will be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you want to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between a couple of hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to control the entire server like an individual account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make a separate account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't choose any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to invest time and effort downloading and setting up the most recent and most protected software on your dedicated server.
