Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting quite popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is amazingly light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, 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 basic benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it includes thousands of software packages that can be freely customized according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you would like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Ubuntu is among the Operating System options that you can find on our registration page if you want to get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages. We will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, so as to match the system requirements of the apps which you'd like to set up on the server. You may also choose the software which will run on your machine, as we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be customized software of your liking. You can set up the latter without problems by using a Secure Shell console, since you'll get root-level access and you'll get full control of the hosting server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel too and manage some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, includes Operating System upgrades.
