Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very 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 secure and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll discover numerous resources online. One of the main benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it includes tens of thousands of software packages which can be easily modified according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you'd like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is among the Operating System options which you can find on our order page if you choose to obtain one of our dedicated servers. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, to match the system requirements of the apps that you want to install on the server. You may also choose the software which will run on your machine, as we will install only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be tailor-made software that you choose. You will be able to set up the latter without any problems through a Secure Shell console, because you will have root-level access and you will have full control over your server. You can set up a website hosting Control Panel too and manage some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, comes with OS upgrades.
