CentOS is among the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is used by many website hosting service providers, because it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very quick and takes minimal resources. On top of that, you will be able to install and run any kind of web app, as long as it can run on a Linux computer system. When 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 of charge does mean that you will need to pay just for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you can discover a solution quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so you will always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server plans that we offer, you'll be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you can use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all of your personal websites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. Also, you can get a server with no Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
