See why many hosting providers go with CentOS as their first pick for a web server Operating System.
CentOS is among the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is preferred by a large number of website hosting providers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also really quick and takes minimal system resources. What's more, you'll be able to set up and run any kind of web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to update any part of the Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free of charge does mean that you will have to pay for your server, but not for any license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and in case you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you can discover a solution in no time. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server packages that we supply, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all of your personal websites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You may also obtain a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software which 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 during the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the bundle.
