CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is offered with each and every VPS server that we supply and you will be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you'd like to install and run, you will be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you wish to use the server for your own websites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to create various hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also acquire a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install just the software that you need for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You are able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you will be able to pick on the order page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful web hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you make a variety of web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you will be able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
