CentOS Overview

CentOS provides an excellent enterprise class operating platform for your VPS, allowing easy system update and application installation with the Yellowdog Update Manager (YUM).

Installing enterprise services such as a LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) for web hosting on a CentOS VPS is made easy with the built-in CentOS YUM groups. To view a list of installed and available YUM groups on your CentOS VPS, simply type 'yum grouplist' at the command prompt.

A VPS running CentOS provides an excellent all round Linux platform which is easy to maintain and secure. Based on the highly regarded Red Hat Linux distribution, CentOS comes from a well maintained Linux distribution lineage, for FREE.

At Farbyte, we have been using CentOS for years and would have no hesitation in recommending it as an operating system platform to any of our clients looking for a Linux based VPS system.

Many companies use CentOS VPS for hosting company websites, databases, email, file servers, etc. It is a proven, trusted platform with a great wealth of information freely available on the internet to help maintain and configure the VPS.

CentOS is also one of the Linux platforms supported by the very popular web hosting control panel cPanel.

CentOS VPS Versions

UK CentOS VPS hosting with SSD disks

As with most open source Linux Operating System distributions, support is provided by the open source community, in the case of CentOS, this is over at CentOS.org.

Here at Farbyte we can also provide managed VPS services for your CentOS VPS installation as an add-on service during checkout.

The version numbers for CentOS are divided in two, as such MAJOR.MINOR.

For example, 5.4, meaning major version 5, minor version 4, or 6.2 meaning major version 6, minor version 2, etc.

These major and minor versions correspond to the source packages used from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux distribution. So, for example, CentOS 5.6 is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 update 6.
