Can you please guide me?~~
You should move to CentOS 7 as soon as possible.
The simple method, is to:
create a new linode server (same spec if you like)
setup CentOS 7
migrate your data between the two servers
redirect traffic to new server and power down old server
keep a backup of your old server before deleting the server on linode
You can do a "test run" by using a virtual copy of the server with virtualbox.
There are tons of dependencies about what kind of software you run on the server, you need to make sure everything will work correctly under CentOS 7 before you migrate.
i think thats the only option I have …
Can I keep the IP same?
You can swap IPs between linodes in the same datacenter. So, you can set the new server up with a new (temporary) IP. When you're ready to cutover, you swap the production IP (IIRC, requires a reboot) to the new server, temp IP to the old server.
