Learn more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it is the OS of choice for a lot of hosting providers.
CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It's used by a large number of website hosting providers, as it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source OS. 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'll be able to set up and run any web application, as long as it can run on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of your Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free of charge also means that you will have to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will decrease your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users is behind CentOS, so in case you ever have any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to find a solution in no time. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we offer with all of our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you can pick 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 wish to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can take care of the whole server like just a single account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to generate an independent account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote time and effort downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on your dedicated server.
