packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the apps that you intend to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from various website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for.

which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to generate an independent account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a 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 will not be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to devote effort and time downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
