In 2020, Are you Ready for RHEL/CentOS 6 EOL?


CloudLinux OS 6 Extended Support for cPanel resurrects EOL RHEL/CentOS 6 servers.

If you're running RHEL or CentOS 6, you'll know that EOL is coming in about a year's time.

When a Linux distro reaches end of life, it's more than the end of a long affair. It's the start of a new dangerous liaison.

That's because EOL means no more vendor support, and no more operating system security patches or bug fixes.

If you're hosting websites with cPanel, you have to ask yourself:

Can you afford to migrate everything to a new OS? (Perhaps you do. But are you sure everything will work the way it has up to now?)

Do you have the time to run parallel systems and test everything to the satisfaction of your organization's compliance and security officers?

Wouldn't you rather just leave things as they are, with cPanel managing websites and your RHEL or CentOS 6 Linux OS ticking over smoothly and reliably?

Yes, you would. And you can. Here's how.

Don't upgrade to RHEL 7 or 8—use CloudLinux OS 6 with Extended Support.

Because CLOS 6 is based on RHEL 6, there'll be no nasty surprises or incompatibility issues.

And unlike RHEL 6, CLOS 6 comes with an extended support program that takes you all the way to the end of June 2024 without having to make radical changes to your platform, or your business processes.

We can do this because we use an innovative hybrid kernel approach that makes modern security-conscious kernels available on older Linux platforms.

Time is running out.

In the web hosting business, it's important to keep ahead of the pack. You're already doing that by using cPanel.

Don't be held back by the imminent end of life of your Linux operating system.

Look to the future with CloudLinux OS 6 Extended Support.
