CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux releases available, however what distinguishes it from the rest is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a stable and protected OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, which is considerably longer than with another OS in existence. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you're able to rapidly find the details which you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and protected, that makes it really reliable even if you host confidential information. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you are able to modify each and every 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, since you won't need to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with all our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the applications that you wish to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from several web hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to take care of the whole server like just a single account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can generate an independent account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend effort and time downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
