What is CentOS

CentOS is a Linux distribution that endeavors to give a free, venture class, group bolstered processing platform practically good with its upstream source, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). In January 2014, CentOS declared the official joining with Red Hat while remaining autonomous from RHEL, under another CentOS overseeing board.

For those small business owners who need an enterprise class OS without the cost of certification, it plays the most important role as It closely resembles the look and feels of Fedora Core. It typically provides more widely used versions of packages and applications by which package management is achieved via RPM or the YUM utility. For hosting resellers, it is one of the best options for enterprise-class distribution, stability, and well-tested and widely-used software.

With IPv4 address space depleting fast, be ahead of the transition to IPv6.

This facilitates supporting certain functionality within the Asterisk PBX software, including conferencing. Several FAQ articles are provided in our Knowledgebase outlining the compilation procedure if building Asterisk from source.

Other PBX software can be installed in a CentOS VPS as well, including:
