CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is employed by countless hosting providers, because it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very quick and takes negligible system resources. On top of that, you're able to set up and run any kind of web application, as long as it can function on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to edit any part of the Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free also means that you will need to pay just for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that if you ever have any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you can discover a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so that you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you want to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between several website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to control the entire server like a single account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to create an individual account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on the dedicated server.
