CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's preferred by numerous web hosting service providers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very quick and takes negligible resources. On top of that, you'll be able to install and run any web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to adjust any part of the Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is provided for free also means that you will need to pay just for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that in case you ever experience any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to discover a solution very quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, which means that you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, due to the fact that this Operating System is one of the options which you're able to choose through the registration process. Since the software that you wish to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to manage the server like you're managing a single large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to have different accounts for the domain names that you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates weekly and will ensure that your server is protected and has the most up-to-date software all the time, to guarantee the optimum performance for your websites.
