Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will find a number of resources online. One of the key advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it has thousands of software packages that can be easily adjusted according to your needs and the needs of the apps that you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
You can get Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans, considering that we supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. Thus, you will be able to pick the more appropriate of them, based on the type of apps that you want to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control over the software environment. We'll install just the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to add everything else you need, even if it's not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You're able to control everything through a console, yet if you would like, you can also set up a hosting Control Panel, provided that 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 up-to-date software packages for a reliable and risk-free server environment.
