CentOS is among the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It is preferred by lots of website hosting service providers, as it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very quick and takes minimal resources. On top of that, you are able to set up and run any kind of web application, as long as it can function on a Linux equipment. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to change any part of the Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you will need to pay just for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A vast group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and in case you ever experience any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to find a solution in no time. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, which means that you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to get CentOS with each dedicated server that we provide, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you're able to pick on the registration page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we offer, so you're able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful website hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, while the other two Control Panels will help you generate a number of hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you'll be able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
