Educate yourself about the CentOS Operating System. Read why it is the preferred distro of Linux for numerous web hosting companies.
CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's preferred by numerous web hosting providers, since it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also really quick and takes negligible system resources. In addition, you are able to install and run any kind of web application, as long as it can run on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can update any part of your Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free also means that you'll have to pay only for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to discover a solution very quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, which means that you'll always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we provide with all of our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the applications that you want to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from several website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to take care of the entire server like a single account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make an independent account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer you regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend time and effort downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most secure software on your dedicated server.
