Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting really popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is really light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover plenty of resources on the web. Among the basic advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it has numerous software packages that can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the apps that you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

If the applications that you want to run require Ubuntu as well as lots of resources, you should select one of our dedicated servers and add this OS to your order with a single click. You will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the Operating System, depending on which edition your apps need in order to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Due to the fact that you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on your machine and you will be able to set up anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not contain a web hosting Control Panel, and you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, yet if you want, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to take care of your web sites. When you do not want to lose time controlling the web hosting server, you can take advantage of the Managed Services package, that features countless tasks done by our system administrators on your behalf. The upgrade comes with regular updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
