Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The main reason is that the OS is really light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover plenty of resources on the web. Among the basic advantages of this OS is the fact that it has numerous software packages that can be freely modified according to your needs and / or the requirements of the apps that you'd 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 code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you will find on our registration page in case you choose to obtain one of our dedicated servers. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, so as to meet the system requirements of the apps that you would like to install on the server. You can also choose the software which will operate on your machine, because we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom-made software of your liking. You're able to install the latter without problems by using a Secure Shell console, because you'll have root-level access and you will have full control over your hosting server. You can install a web hosting Control Panel as well and control some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, includes Operating System updates.
