CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with our dedicated server plans. Throughout the sign-up process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you wish to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from a couple of hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you're able to control the entire server like just a single account whatever the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can generate an independent account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web 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 supply weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to invest time and effort downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most protected software on your dedicated server.
