Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it can function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover numerous resources online. One of the basic advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it has numerous software packages which can be freely customized in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the apps which you would like 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 code is not accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You are able to obtain Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages, because we provide 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this Operating System. Thus, you're able to pick the more appropriate of the two, based on the type of apps which you want to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control over the software environment. We'll install only the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to add everything else you need, even if it is not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You will be able to control everything using a console, but if you want, you can also install a website hosting Control Panel, when it supports Ubuntu. If you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your OS up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a stable and secure server environment.
