Find out more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it's the OS preferred by a lot of hosting companies.
CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the numerous Linux distributions out there, but what differentiates it from all of the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a stable and protected OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, which is longer than with any other OS on the market. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you encounter any problem or have any questions, you're able to promptly find the details which you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it is very stable and secure, that makes it very reliable even if you host confidential information. Because it is open-source, you are able to modify any 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, as you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we provide with our dedicated server
packages. During the registration process, you can select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the apps that you'd like to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from various website hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can manage the whole server like an individual account whatever the number of domain names
that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make a separate account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not choose any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to devote effort and time downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
