CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is employed by a large number of hosting providers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also really quick and takes negligible system resources. On top of that, you're able to set up and run any kind of web application, provided that it can run on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to change any part of your Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you will need to pay for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to discover a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so you'll always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we offer, because this OS is on the list of options that you're able to select during the registration process. Since the software that you wish to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports a variety of hosting Control Panels, which means that if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to control the server as if you're managing one very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have independent accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels feature this a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates every week and will ensure that your server is secure and has the most recent software at all times, in order to guarantee the best possible performance for your websites.
