Inform yourself about the CentOS Operating System. Find out why it is the preferred distro of Linux for a variety of hosting companies.
CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It is employed by a number of hosting service providers, as it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very quick and takes negligible resources. Furthermore, you will be able to install and run any kind of web application, provided that it can function on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can update any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you will have to pay for your server, but not for any license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, and in case you ever have any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can discover a solution quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, which means that you will 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 packages that we offer, since this Operating System is one of the options which you'll be able to pick through the registration process. Since the software that you would like to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with a number of web hosting Control Panels, so if you get a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to manage the server like you're controlling a single very large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have different accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels offer such a functionality. In case you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates every week and will make sure that your server is secure and has the most up-to-date software at all times, to ensure the best possible performance for your sites.
