Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting really popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you'll discover plenty of resources on the web. One of the main advantages of this OS is the fact that it has a large number of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the applications that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with just a click on the registration page. We provide two versions, in order to ensure that the hosting server will meet the requirements of the software that you want to set up. The full root accessibility to your server allows you to set up any other software, because the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server securely from a console, yet if you would like to use a world wide web interface, you're free to set up any kind of Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to focus your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you're able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will handle a variety of tasks for you, which includes weekly OS updates.
