Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting really popular as well. The reason is the fact that the OS is extremely light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will discover lots of resources on the web. Among the key benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it features numerous software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the applications which you'd like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We supply Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with only a click on the registration page. We supply two versions, to ensure that the server matches the requirements of the software that you want to install. The full root access to the server will enable you to set up various other software, because the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You are able to access the server safely from a console, but in case you prefer to use an online interface, you're free to install any Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you would like to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you'll be able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will handle a number of tasks for you, which includes once a week OS updates.
