CentOS is amongst the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is used by lots of web hosting service providers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very quick and takes minimal system resources. Furthermore, you can install and run any web app, as long as it can function on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to change any part of the Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free also means that you will have to pay just for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever experience any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you can discover a solution very quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
When you decide to order one of the dedicated server packages that we offer, you will be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all your personal sites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell hosting plans to other people. You can also purchase a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the bundle.
