Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting very popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is really light and it can function 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) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and stable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you will find numerous resources on the net. One of the key advantages of this OS is that it has a large number of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications which you want 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 program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is one of the OS options which you will find on our registration page in case you decide to get one of our dedicated servers. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, so as to match the system requirements of the apps that you want to set up on the server. You may also select the software which will operate on your machine, due to the fact that we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be tailor-made software of your liking. You'll be able to install the latter without any problems using a Secure Shell console, as you will receive root-level access and you'll have full control over your hosting server. You can set up a web hosting Control Panel as well and control some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, includes OS updates.
