Why choose CentOS for your VPS/Dedicated Server?
If you have never worked with Linux-based Operating Systems and you want to get a VPS or a Dedicated Server, you are in for a hard choice – which Operating System to choose? You will probably encounter strange sounding names like Debian, Fedora or CentOS, with only Ubuntu sounding more familiar, being one of the most popular Linux distributions out there. And while all these Operating Systems are based on roughly the same base Linux kernel, they usually differ in their logic of getting things done. However, there is an easy way to choose between them without getting buried in technical specs and online reviews, which are rarely useful. Simply select your Control Panel of choice – they are usually tied to a specific OS. A very popular choice for a server OS is CentOS. It can be used on both Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Servers, and with it, you can use the popular cPanel/WHM Control Panel combo. This Control Panel is one of the most popular Control Panel tools currently used and maintains a very large support community. This means that you will never be too far away from a helping hand, no matter what the problem is. There are also tons of video tutorials available online, as well as detailed how-to articles. And it is designed to work specifically with the CentOS Operating System. At ResellersPanel, you can get both VPS and Dedicated Servers running CentOS and offering cPanel Control Panel setup options and use them yourself, or you can become a reseller of such servers without ever having to purchase them yourself, at the price of a single Free Reseller Program signup.
