Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting very popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is amazingly light and it can function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll discover a number of resources on the net. One of the major advantages of this OS is that it features a great number of software packages which can be freely changed according to your needs as well as the needs of the apps that you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
You are able to acquire Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages, because we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. In this way, you will be able to choose the more appropriate of the two, depending on the type of applications which you would like to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control over the software environment. We will install just the Apache web server software, therefore you will be able to add everything else you need, even if it is not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You'll be able to control everything through a console, yet if you would like, you may also install a hosting Control Panel, on condition that it's compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will make sure that you have the latest software packages for a well-balanced and risk-free server environment.
