CentOS in VPS Servers
You will be able to select CentOS for your brand new VPS server
throughout the sign-up process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the option to pick the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you'd like to set up and manage. CentOS supports a variety of hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to set up a separate account for each and every domain
hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains together and control the entire server as a single account. You will also have the option to order the VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but without the extra software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you're able to set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we provide.

If you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server
packages that we provide, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your website.

You may also obtain a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software that you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are included in the package.
