CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with our dedicated server plans. During the sign-up process, you can select 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 specifications of the apps that you want to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from several web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can manage the entire 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 make a different account for each and every 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 receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
