    GoDaddy offers Cent OS/cPanel servers in Europe... ? Or when will start offer?

     

    I have server in USA but prefer to be in Europe where is most traffic... Also this server is Cent OS 6/cPanel and needs to replaced because Cent OS 6 will stop updated/supported after 2020 October/November... and this server expiry 2020 April so I have to migrate from 2020 January... 

     

    So I have to plan for now... await a while till Cent OS 7 or 8 VPS Servers became available in Europe...? You support Cent OS 8 currently or only 7  ????

    We are preparing to rollout new VPS plans with updated OS and region options, but it has not yet happened in the US.  So here's a pro-tip, if you go to our UK webpage you will be able to select a CentOS 7 VPS located in Europe: https://uk.godaddy.com/hosting/vps-hosting

     

    You may want to also change your currency from pound to dollar at the bottom of the page.  Hope that helps!

    Yes, one of our data centers for VPS is located in the Netherlands.


    We do not yet offer CentOS 8.  In fact CentOS 8 has not even released yet and you can follow the status of CentOS 8 on their website (https://wiki.centos.org/About/Building_8).  We try to update our images as new OS versions become available.


    By default on a VPS with CentOS 7, php and mariadb/mysql are not installed.  You can install whichever version you like.  There are yum repos with whichever version you need (https://www.linuxtechi.com/install-php-7-centos-7-rhel-7-server/).

    Hope that helps!

    Yes, if you choose a CentOS 7 VPS with cPanel then yes it would have mysql and php preinstalled.  Inside cPanel you can select which version of packages like PHP you wish to use.

     

    Also, CentOS 7 is supported thru June 2024: https://wiki.centos.org/FAQ/General#head-fe8a0be91ee3e7dea812e8694491e1dde5b75e6d

     

    I'm not sure how CentOS 8 will be handled when ready and how long until it will be provided.
