Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it can function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you'll find plenty of resources on the net. Among the basic advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it contains thousands of software packages which can be easily customized in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the apps which you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We provide Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with just a click on the order page. We supply two releases, in order to guarantee that the server matches the system requirements of the software that you want to set up. The full root accessibility to your server will help you set up various other software, because the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server securely using a console, yet if you would like to use an online interface, you can install any Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you want to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you're able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of various tasks for you, among them regular Operating System upgrades.
