CentOS in VPS Servers

You will be able to select CentOS for your brand new VPS server throughout the sign-up process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, to give you the chance to select the one that will be more suitable for the apps that you'd like to install and run. CentOS supports a variety of web hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you intend to do - to create a separate account for every single domain hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and manage the server as a single account. You'll also have the option to order your VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but without the additional software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you'll be able to set up web or database servers that are different from the default ones that we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with our dedicated server plans. Throughout the sign-up process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the apps that you intend to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between a couple of web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you'll be able to control the server like just a single account whatever the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make a different account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't choose any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to spend effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most protected software on the dedicated server.
