Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting very popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it'll run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources on the Internet. Among the major advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it features numerous software packages which can be freely adjusted according to your needs and the needs of the applications which you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Ubuntu is among the OS options which you will find on our registration page in case you decide to acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, so as to match the system requirements of the applications which you intend to install on the server. You can also choose the software which will operate on your machine, because we will set up only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be tailor-made software of your liking. You will be able to set up the latter without problems by using a Secure Shell console, because you'll get root-level access and you will get full control over your server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel as well and control some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, contains OS upgrades.
