The VPS comes with CentOS 7 by default. There is no option in the UI to install another OS/image. To do so requires asking support to perform the install which takes 24 hours. Once CentOS is replaced, most features in the control panel are no longer available. Support with quick to reply nd answered my questions diligently.
In addition to features included in the VPS plan, Bluehost also offers the following services (possibly for a fee):
|Backups||Block storage||Object storage||Load balancer||Floating IP addresses|
|Team Management||Managed databases||Serverless||DDoS protection||Kubernetes|
