CentOS supports various hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you'd like to do - to set up a separate account for each domain name hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and control the server as one single account. You will also have the option to purchase the VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however without the extra software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you are able to install web or database servers that are different from the default ones that we provide.
