Dedicated hosting server plans

The most superior of all website hosting alternatives, the dedicated servers delivered by Free Hostia supply various web site hosting Control Panel alternatives: (a) Hepsia (with the Debian Linux OS only; fee-free; unlimited hosted domain names; one web hosting account login; no root-level access; our top suggestion on the basis of the availability of the industry's best Domain Manager – not contained by default in any other Control Panel in the whole marketplace); (b) DirectAdmin (fee-free); (c) cPanel (a monthly price included). Both DirectAdmin and cPanel are compatible with CentOS only; unmetered hosted Top Level Domains; need another login for domain name, billing transaction and support ticket management purposes; server root access. All dedicated servers are available exclusively in the US datacenter facility.

Control Panel 1 - The Hepsia Control Panel is a standard device only in combination with the Debian Linux OS and is provided without charge. With Hepsia you can host unlimited top level domain names in one single account. This is accomplishable thanks to Hepsia's powerful Domain Manager tool. The other CP devices, i.e. cPanel and DirectAdmin, are attainable solely with CentOS. In contrast with Hepsia, with them you must have 2 separate user accounts. This is so, since cPanel and DirectAdmin do not offer any domain name registration/transfer/administration options. If you go for Ubuntu as an OS for your dedicated hosting web server, there will be no web hosting CP opportunity.

Hosted Site Names 2 - unmetered domain names can be hosted with all offered hosting CP tools, but only with Hepsia you can register/transfer/administer your Top Level Domains in a single account. Regrettably, the cPanel/DirectAdmin Control Panel devices do not provide such possibility at all - there is no Domain Manager platform and therefore they require TWO autonomous accounts: 1 domain name management/billing/support user account and 1 web site management user account (i.e. the actual cPanel/DirectAdmin web hosting CP).

OS (Operating System) 3 - you will find out that the Hepsia hosting CP sustains Debian Linux only. It's free of charge to run it on your dedicated hosting server. Hepsia is not available with CentOS or Ubuntu. The cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel interfaces can operate only with the CentOS OS. Neither of them is available with Debian or Ubuntu.

Root Access 4 - unavailable only with the Hepsia Control Panel and offered in all other circumstances.
