CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with all our dedicated server packages. Throughout the registration process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you would like to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between various hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can control the server like a single account whatever the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to create a separate account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll 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 included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to invest time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most protected software on the dedicated server.
