CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It is preferred by a number of website hosting service providers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also really quick and takes negligible resources. Also, you'll be able to install and run any web app, provided that it can function on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to modify any part of your Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you will need to pay only for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A vast group of developers and users is behind CentOS, and in case you ever have any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to discover a solution quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You can obtain CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you can pick on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we offer, so that you can choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful web hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you set up a variety of hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you will be able to select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
