CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is available with every single VPS server that we offer and you will be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you'd like to install and run, you will be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you want to employ the server for your very own web sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to generate many website hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also acquire a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install just the software that you need for your apps.
