CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is used by countless website hosting service providers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very quick and takes minimal system resources. What's more, you are able to install and run any web app, provided that it can function on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to modify any part of the Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you will need to pay just for your server, and not for any license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users is behind CentOS, and if you ever have any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to discover a solution right away. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, which means that you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with all our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you can select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you would like to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can take care of the whole server like a single account whatever the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate a separate account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to spend time and effort downloading and installing the most recent and most protected software on the dedicated server.
