CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we supply, as this Operating System is one of the options which you will be able to choose during the registration process. As the software that you intend to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with different web hosting Control Panels, and if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you can manage the server like you're controlling one very large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to have different accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels offer such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is safe and has the most recent software at all times, so as to ensure the best performance for your websites.
