CentOS in VPS Hosting
You will be able to pick CentOS for your brand new virtual private server through the sign-up process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the opportunity to choose the one that will be more suitable for the apps that you wish to set up and manage. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you would like to do - to make a separate account for every single domain hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and control the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the choice to purchase your VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however devoid of the extra software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you can set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You will be able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server which we offer, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options which you can choose on our order page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels which we offer, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you generate multiple web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
