You'll be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server during the sign-up process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the opportunity to select the one that is more suitable for the apps that you wish to install and run. CentOS supports various website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you intend to do - to create a separate account for every single domain name hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and manage the server as one single account. You will also have the choice to buy your VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however with no extra software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you're able to set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we supply.

You are able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we provide, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you're able to choose on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer, so you are able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single very large account, while the other two Control Panels will enable you to create numerous web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you are able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
