Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting quite popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it can run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources online. Among the major benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it includes a large number of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the applications that you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We offer Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the registration page. We offer two releases, so as to ensure that the hosting server meets the system requirements of the software that you wish to install. The full root access to your server will help you set up any other software, since the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server safely using a console, but if you like better to use a world wide web interface, you're free to install any kind of Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you will be able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will handle a variety of tasks for you, among them regular Operating System updates.
