CentOS in VPS Hosting

You can select CentOS for your brand new virtual private server during the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the chance to pick the one which is more suitable for the applications that you wish to set up and run. CentOS supports a number of web hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you intend to do - to create a separate account for every single domain name hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domain names at the same time and manage the server as a single account. You will also have the choice to obtain your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however with no additional software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you can set up web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with our dedicated server plans. Throughout the sign-up process, you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the apps that you intend to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from a couple of hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to manage the whole server like an individual account whatever the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can make a separate account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you will receive your 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 will not need to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the most recent and most secure software on your dedicated server.
