CentOS is amongst the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is used by a large number of website hosting suppliers, as it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very quick and takes negligible system resources. In addition, you can install and run any kind of web app, as long as it can run on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to adjust any part of your Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you will need to pay for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to discover a solution in no time. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so you'll always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You are able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you can choose on our order page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we provide, so that you are able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful website hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to make multiple website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
