CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that's is a lot longer than with any other operating system. What this means is frequent security and stability updates which provides a stable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.
