Discover more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it has become the OS preferred by numerous hosting providers.
CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux releases out there, but what differentiates it from the others is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a stable and safe OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that's longer than with another OS in existence. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in case you encounter any problem or have some questions, you will be able to quickly get the data that you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and protected, which makes it really reliable even if you host private information. Because it is open-source, you're able to modify each and every part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you will not have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we provide with all our dedicated server
plans. During the registration process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the applications that you would like to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from a couple of hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to manage the whole server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domain names
which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to create a different account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not choose any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't need to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most secure software on the dedicated server.
