It's employed by a number of web hosting service providers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very fast and takes negligible resources. In addition, you will be able to install and run any web app, provided that it can run on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to adjust any part of your Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free also means that you'll need to pay only for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to find a solution in no time. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so that you'll always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You're able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we provide, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you are able to pick on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels that we provide, so you can choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful website hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels allow you to set up various website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
