Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The reason is that the OS is amazingly light and it'll run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will find a number of resources online. One of the main benefits of this OS is that it comes with a large number of software packages that can be easily customized according to your needs and the requirements of the applications which you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the order page. We offer two releases, to ensure that the server will meet the requirements of the software that you need to set up. The full root admission to your server allows you to install any other software, since the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server safely through a console, yet if you would like to use a web interface, you can set up any Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will handle numerous tasks for you, which includes weekly Operating System upgrades.
