CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with all our dedicated server plans. During the registration process, you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the applications that you want to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from a couple of web hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can take care of the whole server like a single account irrespective of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to create an individual account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not choose any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most protected software on your dedicated server.
