CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is accessible with every single virtual private server
that we offer and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you need to install and run, you are able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all the three web hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you wish to employ the server for your own websites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make numerous hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also purchase a VPS without 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 want for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, as this OS is on the list of options that you will be able to choose through the registration process. As the software that you intend to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with different web hosting Control Panels, which means that if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you can control the server as if you're managing a single large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have distinct accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature this a functionality. If you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is secure and has the latest software all the time, in order to guarantee the best performance for your Internet sites.
