CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we provide with all our dedicated server plans. Throughout the registration process, you will be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the applications that you would like to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between a couple of website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to control the server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make an individual account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not choose any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote time and effort downloading and installing the most current and most secure software on the dedicated server.
