Is CentOS still a choice?
#11
As some who use both Managed and Un-Managed servers, I would use CentOS till it becomes a problem or till providers stop providing it. I think it's a little too early to decide. I have used Ubuntu before and I didn't have a problem with its regular updates. It worked quite well with VirtualMin since you to get all upgrades on GUI and update when you want. Maybe CentOS upstream is not bad as it looks.

cPanel uses it and I don't think they will be jumping to a different OS overnight. They clearly say they won't be supporting CentOS Upstream. CentOS 8 will be supported till 2029. Also, they are going to Rollout Ubuntu-based cPanel version by end of this year. They will support the fork of RHEL 8 and CloudLinux OS 8.

You are wrong mate the support for CentOS 8 is limited to 31st of December 2021 shocking isn't it? while CentOS7 EOL is 30th of June 2024. but i do agree on debian being a good Linux distro i have my fair share of Debian usage while i absolutely hate ubuntu i do love debian for the entire security and update patches debian is by far a better competitor to centOS 7 the only thing why people don't use it as much as they use centos is because of RHEL yeah you heard it right RHEL setup a standard for professional that might be harder to overtake by an Open Source project like Debian or Arch but it doesn't mean they are bad remember BSD or FreeBSD? MacOS is based on that only and you can see the awesome results it's just took them a massive amount of time but they were able to turn an OpenSource OS to a completely different thing.

No, I mean cPanel will support CentOS 8 till 2009. I just had to hunt down that blog post I had read about it. Maybe I read it wrong? But here it is,

I wonder cPanel is ignoring Debian because they take quite a long time to update anything. I couldn't find any valid reason for this even on the cPanel forum. Whenever the question is asked they respond Just stick with given OSes. I don't use Debian but I think it's a very decent system to use as a Base OS on servers. Their package management system is better than CentOS I heard.

Glad to know that cPanel will support Ubuntu ASAP. I'm one of the Ubuntu user, that have used centOS before and really confused, sorry HAHAHA.
For me Ubuntu is really an easy OS to setup and work with, so if cPanel comes in, it will allows more newbies that have hard time to configure their server for hosting to enter the pool.

cPanel also generous too give 3rd party support up to 2029. It's really a very long time and I just wow-ed. They can only support up to 2023, for example, then force all their user to move to Ubuntu instead. But they're generous to keep centOS users alive.
Thanks to Limitless Hosting and Post4VPS for providing me excellent VPS 13!
