CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with our dedicated server packages. Throughout the signup process, you can select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the apps that you wish to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between a couple of web hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you'll be able to take care of the entire server like a single account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to generate an individual account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not choose any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most protected software on your dedicated server.
