Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover lots of resources on the Internet. Among the key advantages of this Operating System is that it comes with numerous software packages which can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs and the needs of the apps that you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is among the Operating System options that you'll find on our order page if you want to acquire one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, to satisfy the system requirements of the applications that you want to set up on the server. You can also choose the software that will run on your machine, since we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom software of your liking. You can install the latter without problems by using a Secure Shell console, since you will receive root-level access and you will get full control of the hosting server. You can set up a website hosting Control Panel too and manage some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features Operating System updates.
