Ubuntu - the Linux Distribution that started out small and is now among the most popular Operating Systems on the market. Read more about its benefits and drawbacks.
Ubuntu is one of the most widespread Linux distributions for desktop computers, yet the OS also has a server edition, that has been becoming more popular these days. Ubuntu is very quick and supports a wide range of hardware components, so it can run on virtually every computer without using an excessive amount of resources. The Operating System is widely known as very reliable and secure, plus as a result of its popularity, you will find many different sources online with information about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, so you're able to get security patches without worrying about softwaretroubles in the long run. Since Ubuntu is free to use, you are able to customize both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and set up in any way you find fit, without any restrictions and without having to pay any license fees. In this way, you can obtain a quick, stable and powerful hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You can obtain Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages, as we provide 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this Operating System. In this way, you can select the more appropriate of the two, depending on the type of apps which you'd like to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control of the software environment. We'll install only the Apache web server software, therefore you can add everything else you will need, even when it's not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You're able to control everything through a console, yet if you want, you may also set up a web hosting Control Panel, as long as it supports Ubuntu. If you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your OS up-to-date on a weekly basis and will make sure that you have the most recent software packages for a stable and risk-free server environment.
