CentOS Dedicated Servers VPS Server Features
When do you need a Dedicated Server with CentOS?
Dedicated server is simply a powerful computer in a specific form factor which is, given by the name, ‘dedicated’ solely to you. No one can use the resources from this server because it is not like VPS or usual web hosting where resources are being shared between users. Dedicated server provides you with a lot of resources and flexibility, but the downside is usually the price. If you only starting your online business then you might think of something less powerful, like VPS and gradually shift to the dedicated server later.
If you already know that you will grow quite fast, then we’re advising buying the dedicated server beforehand and when you start to rapidly grow the remaining free resources will help your website to remain online, regardless of the traffic load.
Why do people tend to switch to dedicated servers apart from productivity boosts? First of all, it’s flexibility. The amount of stuff you can do when you are not being limited by the hoster is immense. You can get even to the kernel core and change it however you want. You are only limited by the server specs themselves.
Coming up to CentOS. CentOS stands for Community ENTerprise Operating System. The reasons to choose it are quite a lot. First of all, it’s Secure from a capital S. Thanks to utilizing SELinux you can protect your server from intruders.
YUM or Yellowdog Updater Modifier is particularly useful when you need to keep your system updated. Not only does it make your system modular, where you can quickly add specific software but also you can configure it the way you want it.
CentOS is a very popular OS thanks to its stability and tons of documentation, which can help you to solve even the most complex problems and a friendly community will help you.
The only thing worth mentioning is that CentOS has come to its End of Life period, meaning that it will stop receiving updates shortly, so keep it in mind.
