Dedicated server hosting plans

The most cutting-edge of all web hosting platforms, the dedicated servers provided by Free Hostia come with different webspace hosting Control Panel options: (a) Hepsia (with the Debian Linux Operating System only; for free; unlimited hosted TLDs; one account login; no dedicated server root access; our recommendation number 1 because of the presence of the avant-garde Domain Manager – not available by default in any other website hosting Control Panel on the entire marketplace); (b) DirectAdmin (as a gift); (c) cPanel (a monthly price included). Both DirectAdmin and cPanel are available with CentOS only; unmetered hosted top level domain names; necessitate an extra user account login for domain name, invoice transaction and support ticket management purposes; dedicated server root access. All dedicated hosting severs are available solely in the American server farm facility.

Control Panel 1 - The Hepsia hosting CP is a regular accessory solely in combination with the Debian Linux Operating System and is supplied free of cost. With Hepsia you can host unlimited TLDs in one web hosting user account. This is achievable due to Hepsia's powerful Domain Manager tool. The other web hosting CP setups, i.e. cPanel and DirectAdmin, are available only in combination with CentOS. Unlike Hepsia, with them you must use TWO different user account logins. This is so, since cPanel and DirectAdmin do not deliver any domain name registration/transfer/administration functionalities. If you opt for Ubuntu as an Operating System for your dedicated web server, there will be no Control Panel choice.

Hosted Hostnames 2 - unmetered domains can be hosted with all available Control Panel platforms, but only with Hepsia you can register/transfer/administer your web site names under one web hosting account. Unfortunately, the cPanel/DirectAdmin Control Panel setups do not provide such feature at all - there is no Domain Manager platform and as a consequence they need 2 different user account logins: one domain administration/billing/support user account and one site management user account (i.e. the actual cPanel/DirectAdmin CP).

Operating System 3 - you will notice that the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel can run on Debian Linux only. It's free of charge to run it on your dedicated server. Hepsia is not offered with CentOS or Ubuntu. The cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel tools can work only with the CentOS OS. Neither of them is offered with Debian or Ubuntu.

Root Access Availability 4 - not available solely with the Hepsia hosting CP and offered in all other cases.
