CentOS is among the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It's used by a lot of 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 Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very fast and takes minimal system resources. Also, you'll be able to set up and run any web application, as long as it can function on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to change any part of the Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you will need to pay just for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to find a solution right away. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so that you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with our dedicated server plans. During 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 meets the specifications of the applications that you want to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from several web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can manage the server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make an independent account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not choose any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most protected software on the dedicated server.
