CentOS is amongst the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It's preferred by a lot of web hosting service providers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also really quick and takes negligible system resources. Also, you will be able to install and run any kind of web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to customize any part of the Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you'll need to pay only for your server, and not for any license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that in case you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to find a solution right away. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, which means that you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server plans which we offer, you're able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host your personal sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. Also, you can acquire a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the bundle.
