CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating System possibilities offered by our VPS web hosting plans
. You will get an efficient, safe and dependable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the selection that you've made through the registration process. You can also pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with the other Linux distributions. These options give you the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your Internet sites and to maintain the whole server as a single very powerful account, or to generate various accounts and give access to others if, for instance, you want to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, yet with no additional software which is usually installed on it, you're able to purchase a VPS without any Control Panel. This will allow you to fully modify the software environment for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with all of our dedicated server
packages. Throughout the registration process, you can select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the apps that you wish to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from various website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can control the whole server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domain names
which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to make an individual account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also supply weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most secure software on the dedicated server.
