CentOS in VPS Servers
You will be able to select CentOS for your brand new VPS server during the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, to give you the option to pick the one that is more suitable for the apps that you want to set up and run. CentOS supports multiple web hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you wish to do - to make a separate account for every single domain name hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domain names together and manage the server as a single account. You will also have the option to buy the VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but without the extra software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you are able to install web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we supply.
