CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux distributions in existence, however what distinguishes it from the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees 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 almost every other OS available on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in case you encounter any problem or have some questions, you are able to rapidly get the data which you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even if you host confidential data. Since it is open-source, you'll be able to modify every part of it and personalize it according to your needs, 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 type.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you are able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all of your personal websites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell hosting plans to other people. You can also obtain a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software which 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 throughout the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the bundle.
