Operating Systems For VPS Hosting?
« on: January 07, 2022, 07:18:46 PM »
I went through the forums looking for specifications on a VPS and discovered that web hosting providers offer the following OS variants for VPS:


CentOS

Debian

Slackware

Ubuntu

Gentoo

Fedora




Which OS is better for PHP sites hosted on a VPS in terms of stability, benefits, and security? thanks.

From the below listed OS, CentOS and Ubuntu are famous.
  • If you are a beginner or want to implement new software and technology as it becomes available, you may prefer Ubuntu.
  • If you want to use control panels to provide web hosting services, CentOS is the way to go because it has the compatibility that you require.
  • CentOS and Ubuntu are roughly equal in terms of security, stability, and functionality. Choosing one is simple if you consider your needs.

I agreed with your first point, Keeran. Ubuntu is most popular for Linux desktops. It provides good user experiences and is easy to use.

Ubuntu and CentOS are both major players in enterprise and data center environments.
There is no denying that both distributions have demonstrated their worth in the server space.
Ubuntu is a strong all-around contender. CentOS is designed with the enterprise in mind in every detail.
If you like the Redhat ecosystem or want an enterprise system with extra long-term support, CentOS is a great choice.
If you prefer the Debian family of distributions and want more flexibility and up-to-date software, Ubuntu is a better choice.
If you want the same distribution on your desktop and server, Ubuntu is a great option.
