    Hi

    We are starting with Colo and are a bit unsure, which operating system we should choose.

    We will buy some DELL Servers and they recomended us the Red Hat Enterprise 3 incl. 1 year subscription.

    They told us, that we don't need to renew this subscription after a year and can take the updates from other sites. Is this really true?

    The other solution would be Fedora, but I was reading in some other postings, that this system is actually not for productive servers.

    Which of this 2 OS do you recomend for WHM/cpanel?

    Thanks
    Mike

    If you are using them for production then RHE would probably be the way to go. With Fedora there are lots of updates since it is a very aggressively developed OS. You could always go with FreeBSD.

    Thanks for the answers.

    For what is actually the fee when I buy RHE? Is this just a one time fee and if I need support, I can renew it? Or I need to renew it, as long as I want to use RHE?

    Thanks
    Mike
