Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting really popular too. The main reason is that the OS is amazingly light and it'll run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any issue or have any question, you will discover lots of resources on the web. One of the major advantages of this OS is that it includes numerous software packages that can be easily modified in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We provide Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the registration page. We offer two versions, in order to make sure that the hosting server will match the system requirements of the software that you want to install. The full root access to the server will allow you to set up various other software, since the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server safely from a console, yet if you prefer to use a web interface, you're free to set up any kind of Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you can add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle various tasks for you, among them weekly OS upgrades.
