CentOS is among the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is preferred by a number of web hosting providers, since it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also really quick and takes negligible resources. In addition, you can install and run any web app, as long as it can run on a Linux equipment. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to update any part of the Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you will need to pay just for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to discover a solution in no time. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, so that you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to order one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you will be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your website. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you are able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. Also, you can get a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom-made software which you need, in place 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 registration process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the bundle.
