Discover more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it has become the OS of choice for many hosting companies.
CentOS is amongst the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's used by a number of hosting suppliers, because it is 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, because it's also very fast and takes minimal system resources. On top of that, you can set up and run any kind of web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. When 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 provided for free also means that you will need to pay just for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you can discover a solution quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, which means that you'll always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You can get CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you're able to select on our order page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels which we supply, which means that you are able to pick 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, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will allow you to set up various web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you'll be able to pick 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, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
