CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It is used by a number of web hosting providers, as 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 quick and takes minimal resources. Also, you are able to install and run any web application, provided that it can run on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you can edit any part of the Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you will need to pay for your server, but not for any license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you can discover a solution quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to buy one of the dedicated server plans which we offer, you'll 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 system resources for your website. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you're able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You may also get a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the bundle.
