CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the numerous Linux distributions available, but what differentiates it from all of the others is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a reliable and secure Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that is considerably longer than with almost every other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you experience any problem or have some questions, you will be able to quickly discover the data which you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and secure, which makes it really reliable even if you host private info. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you're able to modify any 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, since you won't have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans that we offer, you are able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your website. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you can use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all your personal websites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell hosting plans to other people. You can also obtain a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the bundle.
