Find out more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it is the OS preferred by a lot of hosting companies.
CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux releases in existence, however what distinguishes it from the others is its long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a reliable and secure Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, which is considerably longer than with almost every other OS available. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore if you experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you are able to instantly discover the data which you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, because it is very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even if you host private information. Considering that 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 overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans which we offer, you are able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you can use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all of your personal sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. Also, you can purchase a server devoid of Control Panel and set up 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 our optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the package.
