CentOS is among the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It is used by lots of web hosting providers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very fast and takes minimal resources. In addition, you are able to set up and run any kind of web application, provided that it can function 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 preferences. The fact that CentOS is free means that you'll have to pay just for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore if you ever experience any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you can discover a solution right away. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, which means that you'll always have a secure and stable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
If you decide to get one of the dedicated server plans that we provide, you'll be able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all your personal sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. Also, you can acquire a server without a Control Panel and install any custom software that you need, instead 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 sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the package.
