CentOS in VPS Hosting
You can pick CentOS for your new virtual private server through the sign-up process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the option to choose the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you intend to install and run. CentOS supports multiple web hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to make a separate account for every single domain hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and manage the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the option to purchase the VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however with no extra software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you are able to set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we provide with our dedicated server packages. During the signup process, you can select from 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 requirements of the apps that you intend to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from various hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to take care of the server like an individual account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to create an individual account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not select 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 offer you weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most secure software on your dedicated server.
