Educate yourself about the CentOS Operating System. Discover why it is the favorite distro of Linux for many web hosts.
CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It is used by countless web hosting providers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also really quick and takes minimal resources. In addition, you're able to install and run any web application, as long as it can run on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to adjust any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free means that you will need to pay for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to discover a solution very quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so that you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we provide with all our dedicated server plans. During the registration process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you intend to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from a couple of hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to control the server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make a different account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also supply 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 current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
