CentOS in VPS
You'll be able to select CentOS for your new virtual private server throughout the registration process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the opportunity to select the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you would 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 your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and manage the whole server as one single account. You will also have the option to get the VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however with no extra software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we supply.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You are able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we supply, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you're able to select on our order page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer, so that you can select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to make numerous website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you're able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
