Should I go for AMD64 2800+ or Intel P4 2.8HT server?
I looking at http://www.dedicatednow.com/ offer. I go into Cpanel and it can support 64Bit OS such as centos or Redhat enterprise linux. Should I go for Intel 32Bit based OS or AMD 64Bit based OS and which server is faster to run using PHP5, Apache 1 and MYSQL on Cpanel10.
Is CentOS same as Redhat Enterprise Linux OS and price?
It does seem to absolutely fly, I haven't yet seen a site on my shared 64bit servers that has managed to slow the box down.
You're at a slight advantage with DN as they appear to have pre-hacked the config so buildapache works, etc, etc, I've got some Peer1 colo machines running CentOS 3.4 too, but unfortunately they weren't quite as easy to set up and it did take a little bit of modification...
