CentOS in VPS Hosting
If you get one of our virtual private server
packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the signup page. You're able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you want to install later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you can pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you'll be able to order your server without any Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a protected and reliable website hosting service for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we offer with our dedicated server
packages. During the registration process, you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the apps that you would like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from several web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to manage the entire server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domains
which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make a separate account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend effort and time downloading and installing the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
