You will be able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you'd like to install later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on.

During the signup process, you'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the apps that you want to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from several website hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to manage the whole server like a single account irrespective of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to generate a different account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not need to spend time and effort downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
