CentOS in VPS Hosting

If you order one of our virtual private server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the signup page. You're able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, determined by the software that you intend to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you can select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you can order the server without Control Panel and you'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with our dedicated server plans. During the registration process, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you want to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from various hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to manage the server like an individual account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make an independent account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also supply weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't have to spend time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most secure software on your dedicated server.
