CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you wish to do - to create a separate account for each domain name hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domain names at the same time and manage the entire server as one single account.
