CentOS is amongst the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is used by many web hosting providers, since it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also very fast and takes minimal resources. Also, you are able to set up and run any web application, as long as it can run on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to customize any part of the Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is provided for free also means that you'll have to pay just for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution in no time. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with all our dedicated server
plans. During the registration process, you can choose 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'd like to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from several hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can take care of the entire server like a single account whatever the number of domain names
which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to generate an individual account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you'll receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer you weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't need to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on the dedicated server.
