Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it can run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions 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. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you will discover numerous resources online. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it has a great number of software packages that can be freely customized in accordance with your needs as well as 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 all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
We supply Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with only a click on the order page. We provide two editions, so as to ensure that the hosting server will match the system requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root accessibility to the server allows you to set up any other software, as the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You can access the server securely from a console, but if you like better to use a world wide web interface, you're free to set up any Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you would like to focus your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you will be able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of plenty of tasks for you, which includes once a week OS updates.
