Discover more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it has become the OS of choice for numerous hosting providers.
CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is employed by many hosting providers, as it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very fast and takes minimal resources. On top of that, you will be able to install and run any web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to customize any part of your Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you'll need to pay just for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will decrease your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever experience any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to discover a solution right away. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, which means that you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you will be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal sites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell hosting plans to other people. You can also obtain a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the package.
