CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we offer with all our dedicated server packages. During the signup process, you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you would like to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to control the whole server like a single account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to generate a separate account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not select any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend time and effort downloading and installing the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
