Discover why numerous web hosts go with CentOS as their first pick for a web server Operating System.
CentOS is one of the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It is employed by a large number of hosting service providers, because it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also really quick and takes negligible system resources. What's more, you're able to install and run any kind of web application, as long as it can operate on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you can edit any part of the Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free means that you'll have to pay for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will cut down your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever encounter 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. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, which means that you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You will be able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server that we provide, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you will be able to pick on the registration page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels which we provide, so you can choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who require a powerful website hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you generate multiple hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you can choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
