CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is available with every single virtual private server that we offer and you can select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you'd like to install and run, you can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you wish to use the server for your own Internet sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to create a variety of hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also buy a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can set up just the software that you want for your apps.
