Table 2.1, “Hardware Requirements Based on Number of Entries” contains guidelines for the recommended size of the Directory Server database. They are based upon the number of entries that your organization requires. The values shown in the table assume that the entries in the LDIF file are approximately 100 bytes each and that only the recommended indices are configured (since indexing is resource-intensive).

Linux Dedicated servers represent a great deal of all the dedicated servers in the world, due to the several advantages which Linux has as a server Operating System.

Note: If you are an ISP and provide a dedicated server which we can use as a mirror, the CentOS project will manage that server. We will maintain it as an up to date mirror that your local CentOS machines can all use. The end result might be that your users get faster updates and in the end the total bandwidth consumed by doing CentOS updates for you actually goes down ... and of course, you get to support the OS that is making you all that money.
Every Dedicated Server comes preloaded with APF. APF is a well known and respected software firewall that utilizes the built in Linux routing system (iptables). The firewall will be configured to prevent access to all ports but ones necessary for servicing the site. Certain services, like SSH, are blocked by default to help prevent common attacks. During the setup process we can add your IP addresses to allow access to whichever services you deem fit.
Mr. Lane Livingston, CEO of NetHosting, stated, “As the efficiency benefits offered in virtualized hosting environments receive greater publicity, the prospect of migration and other reservations may still deter some enterprises from switching over. But cutting-edge operating systems like Red Hat’s RHEL 6.2 are proving the reliability of innovative hosting options like the cloud in both security and overall stability, which is why Red Hat’s newest release is fully supported on our products.”
The typical installation of CentOS as performed in this tutorial will be based on the CentOS 7 DVD ISO image. You can burn the image to a DVD or copy it to a bootable USB drive. The installation covers the process of installing CentOS 7 on UEFI based machine. The same installation procedure can be successfully applied on old BIOS motherboards or on UEFI systems with Legacy Mode or CSM (Compatibility Support Module) option enabled.
After you’ve made the above settings to your machine motherboard UEFI/BIOS, place the DVD ISO image of CentOS 7.4 or the bootable USB flash stick in the appropriate motherboard drive. Then reboot or power-on the machine. Hit the appropriate bootable key from the keyboard and instruct the BIOS or UEFI software to boot the machine from the appropriate DVD or USB drive. The CentOS 7 bootable ISO image should load and it will present you the first installation image on your monitor screen. Select Install CentOS 7 from that menu and hit the Enter key to start the installation process, as illustrated in the following image.
I had a horrible time trying to get my domain and email accounts transferred to Easyspace because of the incompetence of my last provider. Anticipating all the usual infuriating experiences of trying to get hold of "support" and then being completely unable to understand a strong Indian accent etc etc, I was pleasantly surprised to find the support centre was in the UK, easily accessible by phone and email, completely understandable and very helpful. The guys sorted out my problems efficiently and quickly and helped me to set up one of my email accounts which was proving to be awkward. I have only been with Easyspace for a week thus far so cannot comment on their ongoing service: but, so far so good!
Because CentOS is the free version of Redhat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), it does not come with any support by default, like you might expect from RHEL. That said, there are many third parties who are capable of supporting CentOS. Your hosting provider can certainly provide support for you, or if you need additional assistance, you can always contract with one of many third party management companies.
