CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System and has a close relation with a source code that is derived from Red Hat Linux Enterprise. CentOS 6 is typically available on Linux servers that are running CentOS.
CentOS is a versatile operating system that enjoys extensive popularity of web hosts. It is primarily focused at commercial applications and its developers attach a great significance to compatibility, performance and security rather than high end capabilities. Therefore the period between two releases can be slightly longer.
CentOS 6 VPS is a Virtual Private Server that is designed to run on CentOS 6 operating system. It is a perfect platform for running web based applications. CentOS 6 VPS offers outstanding versatility and is able to run on a range of hardware for multitude of projects.
While CentOS hosting is possible with a number of operating system, we haven’t had more success with other OS than we have had with CentOS 6. Compared to other distros, CentOS only runs the basic and most stable versions of the program, thus eliminating risks linked to system crashes. This is one of the biggest reasons people prefer VPS with CentOS.
