Find out more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it has become the OS of choice for many hosting companies.
CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the countless Linux distributions out there, yet what differentiates it from all of the others is the long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a stable and secure Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that's considerably longer than with almost every other OS available on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in the event you experience any problem or have any questions, you're able to quickly discover the details that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and secure, which makes it really reliable even if you host private data. Considering that it is open-source, you will be able to modify each and every part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you won't need to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
When you decide to get one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you are able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you are able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host your personal sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You may also acquire a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software which 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 throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the bundle.
