    I've been using Fedora since i've been in this industry, I know how to use it and how it works and stuff...

    Now that i want to buy a server from other provider, there is a option to use CentOS too...

    Can anyone please tell me the difference between Fedora and CentOS and which is better and other stuff?

    Go on, have a guess
    Certainly. Fedora is for use in development and research environments and should never be used in production environments, CentOS is basically a copy of RedHat Enterprise but without proprietary code and RH support. It is recommended for production environments:

    The short and sweet answer: 3.4 is supported by Cpanel, 4.0 isn't.
