Learn more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it has become the OS preferred by numerous hosting companies.
CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It is preferred by numerous hosting service providers, since it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also really quick and takes minimal system resources. On top of that, you're able to set up and run any web application, as long as it can function on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to customize any part of your Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is provided for free also means that you'll need to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A vast group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so if you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you can discover a solution in no time. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, which means that you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans that we provide, you can choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you are able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You may also purchase a server without a Control Panel and install any custom-made software which you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the package.
