CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux distributions in existence, however what distinguishes it from all the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a stable and risk-free Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, which is longer than with another OS in existence. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so if you experience any problem or have some questions, you can rapidly get the data which you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it is very stable and secure, that makes it really reliable even when you host sensitive info. Considering that it is open-source, you will be able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to order one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. Also, you can buy a server without a Control Panel and install any custom-made software which you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the package.
