CentOS is amongst the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It is preferred by various website hosting providers, as it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very quick and takes minimal system resources. On top of that, you are able to set up and run any web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of your Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you'll have to pay for your server, and not for any license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and in case you ever have any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you can find a solution very quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so you'll always have a secure and reliable software environment.
