CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is available with every single VPS server that we offer and you can select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you'd like to install and run, you will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be installed and operating soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you would like to employ the server for your personal web sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make various hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also purchase a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install only the software which you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we supply, since this OS is one of the options which you're able to select during the registration process. Since the software that you intend to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with various website hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to manage the server like you're managing a single large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have individual accounts for the domain names that you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades every week and will ensure that your server is secure and has the latest software at all times, in order to guarantee the best performance for your sites.
