Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is longer than with any alternative operating system.

You can also pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with other Linux releases. These options give you the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your Internet sites and to maintain the server as a single very powerful account, or to set up a number of accounts and provide access to other people if, for instance, you want to start a hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, however devoid of the further software which is usually installed on it, you are able to purchase a VPS without any Control Panel. This will enable you to entirely customize the software environment for your sites.

Throughout 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 specifications of the applications that you'd like to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from several website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to control the server like an individual account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to generate a separate account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not choose any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not need to spend time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
