There is no $0 version of Red Hat, proper. For $60 you can get a self-support license (access to Red Hat's knowledgebase and RHN).

For Red Hat without RHN:

http://centos.org
https://www.scientificlinux.org/

Both are $0

For cutting edge:
http://fedoraproject.org
also $0

"ios" is a product by Cisco, for their routers. Not sure what it has to do with Red Hat.

Great...so go to Red Hat's website and download it...did you even try to look for it??? Sign up, download and install for free. However, if you're not planning on PAYING FOR IT, don't bother. You won't get updates/patches/fixes or anything else..your system will wind up unstable and insecure, and it's much harder to install software on it later.

As said, get CentOS instead, if you're not planning on paying for it. What do you need a server-class distro FOR?

And, quite honestly, the license fee just might be well worth it!

(Full disclosure: I'm a "since the IPO" ... heh ... RHAT stockholder.)

Seriously ... you get, at minimum, access to a very thorough knowledge-base and solid support. Now, RHAT's unabashed target is the corporation, not the individual user, and this bias clearly shows in everything they do. There are many other, I think excellent options, such as Ubuntu.

I suggest that you "grab a virtual machine" (using Oracle's (free!) VirtualBox), pick (and, if need be, pay for ) a distro, and dive in!

Linux Questions may not be like some of the web sites out there that offer copyright protected content.

Red Hat is a commercial product and they own various parts of there version of Linux. Centos/Scientific/Oracle and others have to remove that content and build from Open Sources. It is a very labor intensive task to replicate. Red Hat is a major contributor to Linux and they don't always freely provide their technology.

Please read The Welcome to LQ FAQ and please also note that this site does not promote illegal sharing of files. Instead the intent is for Linux users to find help as well as offer help with others' questions if they know the answer. The suggestions by notKlaatu are directions you should consider.

Well, no ... they sell, particularly, their services. They've invested heavily in tools and techniques that allow corporations to run hundreds of copies of RHL on massive computing clusters, and to efficiently manage all of them at the same time. Since they have an assured stream of revenue (and, they always have ...), they can accomplish a lot of work very quickly, and they don't give away the proprietary bits of what they do. (And, neither would you ...)

Even Ubuntu has a by-subscription management service, and there are things that they provide only to those subscribers. It's called, "business." And if you've got a gaggle of servers to manage, you don't mind a bit paying for it. The value-added is worth more than the cost of the service.

For all normal purposes, using CentOS will give you the same experience as Red Hat. Red Hat actually sponsor it, and companies will often try it to make sure that it suits them before going ahead and buying Red Hat.
