Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is that the operating system is really light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you'll find numerous resources online. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is that it features tens of thousands of software packages which can be easily changed in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the apps which you would like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
We offer Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with only a click on the order page. We supply two editions, so as to make sure that the server will match the system requirements of the software that you'd like to set up. The full root accessibility to the server will allow you to install various other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You are able to access the server safely using a console, yet in case you prefer to use an online interface, you're free to set up any Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you can add the Managed Services upgrade and we will handle a number of tasks for you, among them weekly Operating System updates.
