CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It's used by a large number of web hosting suppliers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very fast and takes minimal system resources. What's more, you're able to install and run any web application, as long as it can function on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to customize any part of your Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you'll need to pay only for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users is behind CentOS, and in case you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution very quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, which means that you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server packages that we offer, you are able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you will be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You may also purchase a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software that 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 signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the bundle.
