CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is among the Operating System choices offered by our VPS servers
. You will get an efficient, safe and dependable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made during the signup process. You'll also be able to choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with other Linux releases. These options provide you with the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your personal Internet sites and to control the whole server as a very powerful account, or to make many different accounts and give access to other people if, for instance, you wish to start a website hosting reseller business. In case you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, however with no additional software that is usually set up on it, you'll be able to get a VPS without any Control Panel. This will help you entirely modify the software environment for your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with our dedicated server
packages. During the signup process, you will be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you would like to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from several website hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can take care of the whole server like a single account regardless of the number of domains
which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to generate an independent account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't need to devote effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most secure software on your dedicated server.
