Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting really popular too. The reason is that the operating system is very light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will find plenty of resources on the web. Among the major advantages of this OS is the fact that it has numerous software packages which can be easily adjusted according to your needs as well as the requirements of the apps which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We provide Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with only a click on the order page. We supply two editions, to make sure that the hosting server matches the system requirements of the software that you want to set up. The full root accessibility to the server allows you to install various other software, since the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You are able to access the server securely using a console, yet if you like better to use a web interface, you're free to install any Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you will be able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle a number of tasks for you, which includes regular OS upgrades.
