CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is one of several Operating System solutions offered by our VPS plans. You'll get a fast, safe and reliable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the choice that you've made through the registration process. You can also pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with the other Linux distributions. These options provide you with the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your personal websites and to manage the server as a very powerful account, or to generate a number of accounts and give access to other people if, for example, you intend to start a web hosting reseller business. If you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, however with no extra software that's usually set up on it, you can acquire a VPS without any Control Panel. This will enable you to entirely modify the software environment for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we offer with all of our dedicated server plans. Throughout the sign-up process, you will be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the apps that you'd like to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from several hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to control the server like a single account regardless of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to generate an independent account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not select any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest time and effort downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most secure software on your dedicated server.
