Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is amazingly light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any issue or have any question, you'll discover numerous resources on the net. One of the major benefits of this Operating System is that it comes with numerous software packages that can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the applications which you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
You are able to get Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages, as we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. Thus, you will be able to choose the more appropriate of them, based on the type of applications that you'd like to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control of the software environment. We'll set up just the Apache web server software, therefore you will be able to add anything else you may need, even when it is not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You are able to control everything using a console, but if you want, you may also set up a web hosting Control Panel, on condition that it supports Ubuntu. In case you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your Operating System up-to-date every week and will make sure that you have the newest software packages for a reliable and risk-free server environment.
