CentOS in VPS Servers

You'll be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server throughout the registration process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the opportunity to select the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you'd like to install and work with. CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you wish to do - to create a separate account for each domain name hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domain names at the same time and control the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the option to obtain your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however devoid of the extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you are able to set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones that we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You can obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we offer, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you're able to choose on the registration page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer, which means that you'll be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to make various web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you're able to pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
