You'll be able to select CentOS for your brand new virtual private server through the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, to give you the chance to choose the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you want to install and manage. CentOS supports a number of website hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you wish to do - to set up a separate account for every single domain hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and manage the server as a single account. You'll also have the option to acquire the VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however with no extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to install web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we offer.

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we offer with our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the apps that you intend to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from several hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to take care of the entire server like a single account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make a separate account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most secure software on your dedicated server.
