CentOS in VPS Servers
You'll be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server during the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the option to choose the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you want to install and run. CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you'd like to do - to make a separate account for each domain hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domains at the same time and manage the server as one single account. You will also have the choice to obtain the VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however without the additional software that is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you are able to set up web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we offer.
