CentOS is available with every single VPS server
that we offer and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to install and run, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three web hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you would like to employ the server for your personal websites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to generate various web hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you may also obtain a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install only the software that you want for your applications.
