Find out more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it is the OS of choice for several hosting providers.
CentOS is amongst the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It is preferred by various website hosting suppliers, as it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very quick and takes minimal system resources. On top of that, you are able to install and run any kind of web application, as long as it can operate on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to modify any part of the Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is provided for free also means that you'll have to pay for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to discover a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so that you'll always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You are able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you will be able to pick on the order page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels which we offer, which means that you can pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a large account, while the other two Control Panels will help you set up numerous hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
