You can select CentOS for your brand new VPS server
throughout the signup process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the chance to choose the one that is more suitable for the applications that you intend to install and work with. CentOS supports various hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you would like to do - to make 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 at the same time and manage the server as one single account. You will also have the option to purchase your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the extra software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you can set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones which we offer.
