See why many web hosts go with CentOS as their first choose for a hosting server Operating System.
CentOS is among the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It's employed by various website hosting service providers, since it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also really quick and takes negligible system resources. Furthermore, you'll be able to set up and run any web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to update any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free also means that you'll have to pay for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to find a solution quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so that you'll always have a secure and stable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with all our dedicated server plans. Throughout the sign-up process, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you wish to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between several hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can control the server like a single account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to create an individual account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't choose 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 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.
