CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux releases in existence, yet what distinguishes it from all of the rest is the long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a dependable and safe Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that's a lot longer than with almost every other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so if you encounter any kind of problem or have some questions, you will be able to instantly get the details that you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even when you host sensitive data. Considering that it is open-source, you'll be able to modify each and every part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you will not have to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with our dedicated server plans. During the registration process, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the apps that you wish to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from various hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to take care of the server like an individual account regardless of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can create an independent account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't choose any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most secure software on your dedicated server.
