CentOS in VPS
CentOS is one of several Operating System choices offered by our VPS
. You will get an efficient, well-protected and dependable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made during the signup process. You may also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with the other Linux releases. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with your VPS - to host your sites and to take care of the whole server as one very powerful account, or to generate different accounts and provide access to other people if, for example, you intend to start a web hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, yet devoid of the further software that's usually installed on it, you will be able to obtain a VPS without any Control Panel. This allows you to fully modify the software environment for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You are able to get CentOS with each dedicated server
that we provide, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you can select on the order page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we offer, so you can pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who require a powerful website hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, whereas the other two Control Panels enable you to create various website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you are able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
