Inform yourself about the CentOS Operating System. Learn why it is the preferred distro of Linux for a large number of web hosts.
CentOS is among the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It's used by many website hosting providers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very quick and takes negligible resources. Also, you will be able to set up and run any kind of web application, provided that it can run on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to update any part of your Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free of charge also means that you will have to pay for your server, but not for any license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users is behind CentOS, and in case you ever encounter any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to find a solution very quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so that you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with all our dedicated server packages. During the sign-up process, you'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the apps that you would like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from several website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you're able to control the entire server like a single account regardless of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make an individual account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote time and effort downloading and installing the most recent and most secure software on your dedicated server.
