During the registration process, you will be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the applications that you'd like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from a couple of hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to manage the whole server like a single account regardless of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to generate an individual account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote time and effort downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on your dedicated server.
