Various Linux Hosting Distribution

The Linux hosting system was first introduced in 1991 and it was a well received operating system until today. Nowadays, users see Linux hosting as a wonderful replacement for Windows or Mac OS X system. Initially, it was only used as a server solution but it is making its way into homes now. One of the biggest reason for it to be so popular is because it is an open-sourced solution. This way, many developers are constantly providing new stuff for it. There are a few ways on how Linux is distributed and this is what we will take a look at in this article.

The first distribution is called Ubuntu. It is considered as the most widely used distribution channel because it is made more for a desktop compatibility instead of a server. Many of its features can match up with the Windows system. Therefore, Ubuntu is a strong player when it comes to making a choice for a hosting solution.

Next, we have the Kubuntu distribution. From its name alone, you can tell that it might have a similarity to the Ubuntu system. In fact, it is very similar to Ubuntu except that it is using a different file system. Both distribution have similar functions and are very user-friendly compared to other distribution of Linux. Therefore, many users opt for this system because they do not have to deal with complicated server management tasks.

Then, we have the Debian distribution. This distribution is a more complex system which may be a little harder for users who do not have the knowledge. This is due to its superior flexibility and performance which can be well used for either a desktop or a server environment.

Following that, we have the Fedora system. Unlike the other, this distribution is considered as a light weight distribution which often is included in dedicated hosting servers. Based on the RedHat Linux, Fedora is commonly used commercially. Therefore, it is competing with Microsoft Windows. Operating Fedora does not require big resources. It can run with limited resources but its performance will still be top notch.

Last but not least, there is the CentOS distribution. CentOS which stand for Community Enterprise Operating System are also a distribution based on the RedHat Linux but it is a free source distribution. CentOs is used for commercial development because of its stability and security.
