CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is offered with every single VPS server that we offer and you can select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to set up and run, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be all set soon after that. CentOS supports all the three website hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you would like to use the server for your very own websites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up a variety of website hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also get a VPS without any 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 install only the software that you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you can choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host your personal websites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. Also, you can purchase a server without a Control Panel and install any custom software that you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the bundle.
