CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very fast and takes minimal resources. Also, you're able to set up and run any kind of web app, as long as it can run on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of your Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you will need to pay just for your server, and not for any license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to discover a solution very quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so you'll always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with all our dedicated server
packages. During the registration process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you'd like to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between various website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can control the whole server like a single account whatever the number of domains
which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to create a different account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote time and effort downloading and installing the most recent and most protected software on the dedicated server.
