Determined by the software that you need to install and run, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three website hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you want to employ the server for your own web sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to create numerous hosting accounts and resell them to other people.
