Inform yourself about the CentOS Operating System. Discover why it is the favorite distro of Linux for a large number of web hosting companies.
CentOS is one of the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It is preferred by countless hosting providers, since it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very quick and takes minimal resources. In addition, you'll be able to set up and run any web application, as long as it can function on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to edit any part of the Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you'll need to pay only for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A vast group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that in case you ever have any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to find a solution in no time. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so that you will always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server packages that we provide, you're able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all your personal sites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell hosting plans to other people. You may also acquire a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom-made software which you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the bundle.
