You are able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you want to install later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different 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, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera.
