Learn more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it has become the OS preferred by several hosting companies.
CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux releases in existence, but what differentiates it from all the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a reliable and risk-free Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is a lot longer than with another OS out there. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in the event you experience any problem or have any questions, you'll be able to instantly get the data that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and secure, which makes it really reliable even when you host private information. Since it is open-source, you can modify each and every part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you will not need to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to order one of the dedicated server plans that we provide, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you're able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all your personal sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You may also buy a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the package.
