Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting pretty popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you will find lots of resources on the web. Among the key advantages of this OS is the fact that it includes numerous software packages which can be freely modified according to your needs and / or the needs of the applications that you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
We supply 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 release with just a click on the registration page. We supply two releases, in order to ensure that the server meets the system requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root access to the server will help you install any other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You are able to access the server securely through a console, however if you prefer to use an online interface, you're free to set up any Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you want to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you're able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of various tasks for you, which includes regular OS updates.
