CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It is one of the countless Linux releases in existence, but what differentiates it from all the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a stable and safe Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, which is longer than with another OS out there. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore if you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you're able to quickly find the info that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and secure, that makes it really reliable even if you host private information. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you are able to modify any 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, because you will not have to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we supply with all our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you will 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 matches the specifications of the applications that you would like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between several hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to take care of the server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to create an individual account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also supply regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't need to spend effort and time downloading and installing the most recent and most protected software on your dedicated server.
