CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is one of several Operating System options provided by our Linux VPS service
. You will get an efficient, safe and dependable machine along with a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the choice that you've made through the sign-up process. You'll also be able to choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with other Linux distributions. These options give you the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your own sites and to control the server as a single very powerful account, or to create multiple accounts and give access to other people if, for instance, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. If you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but devoid of the further software which is usually set up on it, you're able to get a VPS without any Control Panel. This will help you entirely customize the software environment for your websites.

plans that we offer, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine.
