CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the numerous Linux distributions in existence, yet what differentiates it from all of the others is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a reliable and secure Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that is much longer than with any other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore if you encounter any problem or have any questions, you'll be able to instantly get the information that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and secure, that makes it really reliable even when you host sensitive information. Since it is open-source, you are able to modify each and every part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You're able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server that we offer, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options which you will be able to select on the order page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we provide, so you can pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful web hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a large account, while the other two Control Panels will help you create multiple website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to pick a server setup without 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.
