CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is accessible with each and every virtual private server that we supply and you will be able to select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you'd like to set up and run, you can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be installed and operating soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you want to use the server for your own sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to create multiple website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also order a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install just the software which you need for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with all our dedicated server packages. Throughout the signup process, you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you wish to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from several website hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you'll be able to take care of the server like just a single account whatever the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate a separate account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to devote time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most protected software on your dedicated server.
