CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the applications that you want to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from various website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can control the server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate an independent account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote time and effort downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most secure software on your dedicated server.
