Discover more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it has become the OS of choice for several hosting providers.
CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux distributions out there, however what distinguishes it from all of the rest is its long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a stable and risk-free OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that's much longer than with another OS out there. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you encounter any kind of problem or have some questions, you are able to promptly get the data that you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, because it is very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even if you host sensitive information. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you're able to modify 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, since you will not need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You are able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you are able to choose on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels that we provide, which means that you'll be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, while the other two Control Panels allow you to create a variety of website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you're able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
