CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's used by lots of web hosting providers, as it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very quick and takes negligible system resources. In addition, you can set up and run any kind of web app, provided that it can function on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to customize any part of the Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you'll have to pay for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users is behind CentOS, so in case you ever experience any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution right away. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, which means that you'll always have a secure and stable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to get one of the dedicated server packages that we offer, you'll be able to select 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 website. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. Also, you can acquire a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that 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 during the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the package.
