CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the countless Linux distributions available, but what distinguishes it from all the rest is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a reliable and secure Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that is longer than with any other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you encounter any problem or have any questions, you are able to quickly get the info which you need. CentOS is considered to be among the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even when you host sensitive info. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you are able to modify any part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, 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 sort.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You will be able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server that we provide, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options which you are able to choose on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we provide, so you're able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a very large account, while the other two Control Panels will allow you to create a variety of web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
