Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting really popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it will function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover lots of resources on the web. One of the main benefits of this Operating System is that it contains thousands of software packages that can be easily changed according to your needs and the requirements of the applications which you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We supply Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the registration page. We supply two editions, in order to make sure that the hosting server will match the system requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root admission to the server will allow you to install any other software, since the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You are able to access the server safely through a console, however if you prefer to use an online interface, you are free to install any kind of Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of various tasks for you, among them once a week OS upgrades.
