We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the opportunity to select the one that is more suitable for the apps that you would like to install and run. CentOS supports multiple web hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you would like to do - to create a separate account for each domain name hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and control the whole server as one single account. You will also have the choice to order your VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however without the extra software which is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you will be able to set up web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we provide.

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with all of our dedicated server plans. During the registration process, you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you would like to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from several hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to take care of the entire server like an individual account whatever the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to make an independent account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote time and effort downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most secure software on the dedicated server.
