By default, yum, the CentOS package manager, has fewer packages that you can install compared to some other OS's such as Ubuntu. The plus side of this is that limiting the scope of what software can be automatically installed may improve compatibility and stability concerns. The downside is that it is an extra inconvenience to compile and install software manually if you do need software that cannot be installed by yum.
Server managed service is something that you should be very specific about. This is what will ensure the availability and the performance of the server. Be a little detailed while explaining the service that you require as this will help the service provider meet your requirements in the best possible way. We offer managed services support on network level, OS level, application level, back up and DR level.

Some companies offer 30-day money-back guarantees, while others offer 90-day money-back guarantees. Once again, it's beneficial to do your homework.

A dedicated server solution is perfect for complex, high-volume websites that require serious amounts of processing power and storage. Some examples of websites that may require this service could be sites that have been around for a while and generated tons of pages and media, multiplayer video game servers for your own pet project, voice or video chat servers, or any other project requiring peak performance at all moments. In essence, if you need a lot of storage, processing power, and/or bandwidth, you need a dedicated server.
