Educate yourself about the CentOS Operating System. Discover why it is the favorite distro of Linux for many hosting companies.
CentOS is among the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It's used by various website hosting suppliers, as it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also really quick and takes minimal system resources. Also, you'll be able to set up and run any kind of web application, provided that it can function on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to customize any part of your Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you'll have to pay only for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to find a solution very quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we offer with all our dedicated server packages. During the signup process, you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the applications that you would like to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between several website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to take care of the entire server like a single account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can create an individual account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't pick any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't have to invest time and effort downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
