CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It's employed by a number of website hosting service providers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very fast and takes minimal resources. On top of that, you can set up and run any kind of web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to modify any part of the Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free means that you will need to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you can find a solution very quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, which means that you will always have a secure and stable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we provide with our dedicated server packages. Throughout the registration process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the applications that you intend to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between a couple of web hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to control the server like a single account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make a different account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't need to devote effort and time downloading and installing the most recent and most secure software on your dedicated server.
