CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux distributions in existence, but what distinguishes it from all of the rest is its long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a reliable and safe Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that's longer than with almost every other OS available. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore if you encounter any problem or have any questions, you are able to promptly discover the info that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even if you host sensitive info. Because it is open-source, you'll be able to modify any part of it and customize it according to your requirements, 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 Web Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we offer with all our dedicated server
packages. Throughout the registration process, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the applications that you wish to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from several hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to take care of the entire server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domain names
that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can generate an individual account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't need to devote time and effort downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
