CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux distributions in existence, however what differentiates it from all of the others is its long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a dependable and protected Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that's a lot longer than with another OS out there. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you encounter any kind of problem or have some questions, you can rapidly get the information that you need. CentOS is considered to be among the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even if you host confidential information. Considering that it is open-source, you will be able to modify any part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you will not have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to buy one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you will be able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your site. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all your personal sites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You may also get a server without a Control Panel and install any custom software that you need, in place 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 signup process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the package.
