During the signup process, you can select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version 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 also allows you to select from a couple of web hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you'll be able to take care of the entire server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make an individual account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business.

We also offer you weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on your dedicated server.
