Discover more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it has become the OS of choice for many hosting companies.
CentOS is one of the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It is preferred by countless web hosting providers, because it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also very quick and takes negligible resources. On top of that, you can set up and run any web app, provided that it can run on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of the Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you will have to pay only for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever experience any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to find a solution quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, which means that you'll always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You are able to get CentOS with each dedicated server which we provide, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you're able to choose on our order page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we provide, which means that you will be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, while the other two Control Panels will allow you to generate multiple hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you can select a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
