We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the opportunity to choose the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you wish to set up and manage. CentOS supports a variety of web hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you would like to do - to set up a separate account for each domain name hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domain names at the same time and control the entire server as a single account. You will also have the option to buy your VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however with no additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to set up web or database servers that are different from the default ones that we offer.

CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply, therefore you're able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server.
