CentOS in VPS Servers

You can select CentOS for your new VPS server throughout the registration process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the option to choose the one that is more suitable for the applications that you would like to install and work with. CentOS supports various hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you intend to do - to create a separate account for each domain hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domain names together and manage the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the choice to obtain the VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you can easily set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with all of our dedicated server plans. Throughout the sign-up process, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you want to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from various website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you're able to take care of the entire server like a single account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to make a separate account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't choose any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest effort and time downloading and installing the latest and most protected software on the dedicated server.
