Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting quite popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it will run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover plenty of resources on the net. Among the major advantages of this Operating System is that it features a great number of software packages which can be easily adjusted according to your needs and / or the needs of the applications that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Ubuntu is one of the OS options which you'll find on our registration page if you choose to acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, so as to match the system requirements of the applications which you want to set up on the server. You can also select the software that will run on your machine, because we will install only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be customized software of your liking. You are able to set up the latter without problems using a Secure Shell console, as you will have root-level access and you will have full control over the server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel too and manage some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, comes with OS upgrades.
