Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is amazingly light and it will run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources on the net. Among the basic benefits of this OS is that it features a large number of software packages which can be easily modified in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the apps which you intend to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with just a click on the order page. We provide two versions, in order to guarantee that the hosting server will meet the system requirements of the software that you need to set up. The full root access to your server will allow you to install any other software, as the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server securely through a console, but if you like better to use a world wide web interface, you can install any kind of 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 are able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will handle numerous tasks for you, including once a week OS upgrades.
