CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You're able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you'll be able to pick on the registration page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels which we offer, so you are able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful web hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single very large account, while the other two Control Panels will allow you to create numerous hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you're able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
