CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is one of several Operating System options offered by our VPS web hosting plans
. You will get an efficient, secure and reliable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the selection that you've made through the registration process. You can also pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with the other Linux releases. These options will provide you with the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your personal sites and to control the server as a single very powerful account, or to generate a number of accounts and provide access to others if, for instance, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, however without the further software that's usually installed on it, you're able to get a VPS without Control Panel. This will allow you to fully customize the software environment for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, as this Operating System is one of the options that you are able to pick during the registration process. Since the software that you would like to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a variety of web hosting Control Panels, and if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to manage the server as if you're controlling a single large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have separate accounts for the domain names
which you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels offer such a functionality. If you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades weekly and will ensure that your server is safe and has the latest software at all times, in order to guarantee the optimum performance for your websites.
