Educate yourself about the CentOS Operating System. Learn why it is the preferred distro of Linux for many web hosting companies.
CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux releases in existence, yet what differentiates it from all the rest is the long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a dependable and risk-free OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, which is much longer than with any other OS available. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in case you encounter any kind of problem or have any questions, you will be able to rapidly get the information that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and secure, that makes it really reliable even when you host confidential information. Considering that it is open-source, you will be able to modify every part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You can obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you can choose on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels that we offer, therefore you'll be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, whereas the other two Control Panels enable you to set up multiple hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you'll be able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
