Find out more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it has become the OS of choice for a lot of hosting companies.
CentOS is amongst the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is used by a lot of hosting suppliers, because it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also very quick and takes negligible resources. What's more, you're able to install and run any kind of web app, provided that it can run on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to modify any part of the Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you will have to pay just for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, which will cut down your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so in case you ever experience any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to find a solution very quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, which means that you will always have a secure and stable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans that we supply, you're able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it is very light and efficient, 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 provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You may also get a server with no Control Panel and install any custom-made 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 our optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
