CentOS is amongst the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It's used by a number of website hosting service providers, since 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, as it's also very fast and takes negligible system resources. In addition, you'll be able to install and run any kind of web app, as long as it can function on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to edit any part of your Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free of charge does mean that you'll have to pay only for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, which will cut down your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and in case you ever encounter any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to find a solution in no time. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, which means that you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
If you decide to get one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you are able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host your personal sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. Also, you can get a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the package.
