Learn more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it's the OS of choice for a lot of hosting companies.
CentOS is amongst the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It is used by a lot of hosting suppliers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, 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 fast and takes negligible system resources. Also, you are able to set up and run any kind of web application, as long as it can run on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to change any part of the Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you will have to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that in case you ever experience any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution in no time. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we supply with our dedicated server packages. During the sign-up process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you intend to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from various hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can manage the entire server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make an individual account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer you regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to spend time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
