When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can edit any part of the Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is provided for free means that you'll have to pay only for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will decrease your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever experience any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to find a solution in no time. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so that you'll always have a secure and stable software environment.
