Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is that the OS is very light and it can function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll find plenty of resources online. One of the key advantages of this OS is that it has numerous software packages which can be easily customized in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the apps which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
We supply Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the registration page. We supply two versions, so as to guarantee that the hosting server will match the system requirements of the software that you'd like to install. The full root accessibility to the server will enable you to set up any other software, because the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You can access the server securely using a console, yet in case you would like to use a world wide web interface, you can set up any kind of Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you need to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you will be able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of numerous tasks for you, which includes once a week OS updates.
