CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the numerous Linux releases out there, yet what differentiates it from the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a stable and risk-free OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is a lot longer than with another OS available on the market. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you can promptly get the information that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and secure, that makes it very reliable even when you host confidential information. Because it is open-source, you will be able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you won't have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we offer with our dedicated server plans. During the sign-up process, you'll 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 requirements of the apps that you'd like to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can take care of the entire server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can generate a separate account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you'll receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't need to spend effort and time downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
