Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting quite popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it can run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a protected and dependable software environment on your hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover lots of resources online. Among the major advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it includes a great number of software packages that can be freely changed in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

If the apps that you would like to run require Ubuntu and plenty of resources, you can choose one of our Linux dedicated servers and add this Operating System to your order with a click. You will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of your Operating System, based on which release your applications need to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. As you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on the machine and you will be able to install anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not contain a website hosting Control Panel, therefore you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, but if you'd like, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your Internet sites. When you don't want to lose time managing your server, you can use our Managed Services package, which includes plenty of tasks done by our admins on your behalf. The package features regular updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
