See why many web hosts go with CentOS as their first choose for a server Operating System.
CentOS is among the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's preferred by numerous hosting suppliers, since it's very stable, reliable and secure, 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 very quick and takes negligible system resources. Also, you'll be able to set up and run any web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to update any part of your Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free also means that you will need to pay just for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, which will cut down your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that if you ever have any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you can find a solution in no time. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, which means that you'll always have a secure and stable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we offer with all of our dedicated server
packages. During the registration 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 matches the requirements of the applications that you wish to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from various 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 an individual account irrespective of the number of domains
which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate an individual account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you'll receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to spend effort and time downloading and setting up the most recent and most secure software on the dedicated server.
