How to Properly Reboot Linux CentOS/RHEL Server

What is the correct way to reboot a CentOS/RHEL Linux server?

I would recommend to reboot the server using two command line either from terminal or ssh. It works on both situation. But my highly recommended is option 1.

1. Reboot using init 6 command

    [root@server ~]# init 6
    

2. Reboot using reboot command

    [root@server ~]# reboot
