Get familiar with the CentOS Operating System. Discover why it is the preferred distro of Linux for a lot of hosting companies.
CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It is one of the numerous Linux releases out there, but what differentiates it from the others is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a dependable and safe Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, which is much longer than with another OS in existence. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so if you encounter any problem or have some questions, you will be able to promptly discover the information that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it is very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even when you host confidential information. Considering that it is open-source, you are able to modify each and every 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, since you won't need to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to get one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you are able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. You may also get a server without a Control Panel and install any custom-made software that you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the bundle.
