Now offering CentOS 6

Recommended Posts

I have never been running my own VPS, but looks like I may need to upgrade soon and now trying to decide if I'll be able to manage it properly.

I'm using HawkHost shared services for 3+ years, but everything is pre-configured there and it's CloudLinux.

So could you please advice: which OS is the better option, if amount of memory is low (most basic VPS with 256 or 384 MB of RAM)?

CentOS 5 or 6? Or Debian 5? (I don't think that I'll be considering Fedora, Ubuntu or Gentoo)

According to your experience, do these OSs somehow differ in speed and memory requirements?

If you're using shared hosting and upgrading to a VPS, odds are you're going to want to use cPanel/WHM on the VPS as well. In that case CentOS 6 is going to be your best bet, as Debian is not a supported platform for cPanel/WHM :)
