We do offer hardware customizations on existing Dedicated servers but it is recommended you add them on at the initial purchase as any hardware changes once the server is active would result in downtime for your server. The cost varies depending on the upgrades. Contact our Sales team for prices. Hardware configuration options differ depending on data center location.

Launched in late 2003, CentOS is a community project with the goals of rebuilding the source code for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) into an installable Linux distribution and to provide timely security updates for all included software packages. To put in more bluntly, CentOS is nothing more than a clone of RHEL. The only technical difference between the two is branding - CentOS replaces all Red Hat trademarks and logos with its own. But the connection between RHEL and CentOS is not immediately visible on the CentOS web site; due to trademark laws, Red Hat is referred to as a "Prominent North American Enterprise Linux Vendor", instead of its proper name. Nevertheless, the relations between Red Hat and CentOS remain amicable and many CentOS developers are in active contact with Red Hat engineers.

Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) cards are used to accelerate analytical solutions, machine learning and deep learning, and engineering/modeling applications. GPUs are used in parallel with CPUs for processing and advanced computation capabilities which allow certain applications to run faster. The following GPUs are available for deployment in your Rackspace dedicated server:


CentOS, which stands for Community ENTerprise Operating System, is the most popular choice of all the Linux distribution out on the web.Based on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) server, our CentOS Dedicated server is a free operating system that is supported by an avid online community. It is the result of a collection of open source developers and users collaborating together to create a quality Linux solution available to anyone, completely supported by donations.
While most hosts offer between 5TB and 15TB of bandwidth, which is plenty sufficient for most customers, HostGator scales its dedicated plan all the way to 25TB of data transferred between your site, visitors, and the internet. A2 Hosting offers unlimited storage and bandwidth on what the company calls a semi-dedicated server, which is basically a souped-up and more expensive shared plan for those who need more resources but aren’t quite ready to take the leap to dedicated servers.
Steadfast has over 20 years of experience with hosted Linux solutions, including managed Linux dedicated server hosting. We offer full support (with Steadfast Advantage included) for CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, and CloudLinux. Additionally, we can install most any other distribution you want such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux (we recommend CentOS instead), Gentoo, Fedora, SuSE, CoreOS (great for Docker or Kubernetes), or even custom Linux distributions.
Once you have the hardware, your next big decision will be how to configure and manage the server. Although many dedicated plans give customers root access to fine-tune the details, most users opt for a hosting control panel, or a graphical interface that enables administrators to perform complex tasks with just a few clicks of the mouse. We’ve written the ultimate guide to comparing the various options, but the general rule of thumb is to use cPanel for Linux machines and Plesk for Windows accounts.
Repeat after me: There is no such thing as a free dedicated server — not one that can handle all the things that dedicated customers typically need their server to process, anyway. If you fall into one of the free dedicated hosting traps, you’re going to wind up so frustrated by the resource limitations and downtime issues, or your credit card is going to be charged out the you-know-what when the free trial expires in a week. Turn your attention to low-cost, high-quality options instead.

Right off the bat, we should explain the difference between cheap and value hosting. Although we’ll occasionally cover free hosting services, we usually encourage looking past the price tag and examining the bang for your buck. In most cases, spending a few extra dollars unlocks a ton of useful features that will streamline your hosting experience and make a big difference in site performance and visitor experience.
CentOS is the most popular version of Linux for web servers. It is an open-source Linux distribution derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), but it is not affiliated with Red Hat, Inc. With its fast-growing base of users and community contributors, CentOS is constantly tested and updated to ensure that its users have a stable, secure and high-performance hosting environment.

FREE in WHM, AutoSSL is cPanel’s answer to the annoying problem of SSL renewals and installation. Some Certificate Authorities utilize short expiration dates on their certs (for security purposes it’s better to limit exposure if your key is compromised) requiring admins to frequently renew their certs manually to avoid a coverage lapse. You can use this tool to issue Domain Validated SSLs through Comodo at no additional charge. If you prefer a different type of SSL you can purchase a 3rd party SSL and install it directly or use our Launch Assist service and allow our System Admins to install it for you. Server Name Indication (SNI) is enabled by default to allow a single IP to support multiple SSLs.
CentOS is a top choice operating system for Linux Dedicated Servers. It gives you the stability and security, which are generally expected from a Linux Distribution and, on top of that, adds all the enhancements made by the Red Hat developers. Today, CentOS-powered dedicated servers are used for almost anything - from serving as mail portals to hosting Facebook applications.

Most hosts offer at least some form of managed services, given that the hardware is living in its own facilities or datacenters. Even if the hosting provider insists on hardware and infrastructure management, they’re usually plenty willing to butt out of your web server if you ask nicely. There will be more pressure and demands on you to keep everything running smoothly and securely, but your host will continue offering technical support if you run into a jam.
