CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible 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. Determined by the software that you need to set up and run, you will be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you wish to use the server for your personal websites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to create various hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also obtain a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can set up only the software which you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we supply, because this OS is one of the options that you can select through the registration process. Since the software that you need to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a number of web hosting Control Panels, so if you get a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can manage the server as if you're managing one very large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have separate accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature this a functionality. If you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades on a weekly basis and will make sure that your server is protected and has the most up-to-date software at all times, in order to ensure the best possible performance for your web sites.
