CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that is is longer than with any other operating system. What this means is frequent safety and stability updates that provides a stable software environment for your web applications in the long run.
