Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is very light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will discover plenty of resources on the Internet. One of the main benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it has a great number of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We supply Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with just a click on the registration page. We supply two releases, in order to make sure that the server meets the system requirements of the software that you'd like to set up. The full root access to your server will help you set up various other software, as the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You are able to access the server safely using a console, however if you prefer to use a world wide web interface, you're free to set up any Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you need to focus your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you can add our Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of a number of tasks for you, among them regular OS upgrades.
