packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You will be able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you would like to set up later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera.
