CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very quick and takes negligible resources. In addition, you'll be able to install and run any kind of web app, as long as it can function on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to update any part of your Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you will need to pay for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to find a solution very quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so that you'll always have a secure and dependable software environment.

CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we provide, which means that you'll be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will allow you to make a number of web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you're able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need.
