Discover why many web hosts go with CentOS as their first choose for a server Operating System.
CentOS is amongst the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It is preferred by a large number of website hosting service providers, since it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very fast and takes minimal system resources. In addition, you are able to install and run any kind of web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you can modify any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you will need to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to find a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans which we offer, you can select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you can use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all your personal websites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. You may also get a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the bundle.
