cPanel System Requirements

Supported System Architecture

HostGator has two different types of system architecture that support the use of CenOS/RHEL versions 5 and 6:

  • i386 Architecture
  • x86-64/amd64 Architecture

All HostGator Linux servers run CentOS 6 by default. This includes Shared plans, Cloud Hosting, Wordpress Hosting, VPS packages, and Dedicated servers. 
Custom configurations or operating systems require a VPS or Dedicated server. For information or to request a custom configuration or OS, please contact us via phone or Live Chat.

Note: cPanel only supports CentOS, CloudLinux, and RHEL at the current time. HostGator may not offer or support some of these platforms.
