Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it can function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will find plenty of resources on the web. One of the key advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it includes a great number of software packages that can be freely changed in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications which you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We supply Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with only a click on the order page. We provide two versions, in order to ensure that the server will match the system requirements of the software that you'd like to install. The full root access to your server will enable you to set up any other software, as the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You can access the server safely from a console, however in case you prefer to use a world wide web interface, you're free to install any Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you are able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle a variety of tasks for you, among them regular Operating System upgrades.
