See why many hosting suppliers go with CentOS as their first pick for a web server Operating System.
CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is preferred by a large number of web hosting providers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very fast and takes negligible system resources. In addition, you will be able to install and run any kind of web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to customize any part of the Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free also means that you will need to pay just for your server, and not for any license fees, that will decrease your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to find a solution in no time. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You can obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we provide, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you are able to pick on the order page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we provide, so that you will be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful web hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single large account, while the other two Control Panels will enable you to generate a variety of web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you're able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
