Find out more about Ubuntu, how this tiny Linux distro has taken the world by storm and why it’s nowadays so popular.
Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting really popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it'll 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 the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources on the Internet. One of the basic benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it comes with numerous software packages that can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the applications that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We offer Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you are able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with only a click on the registration page. We provide two editions, to guarantee that the server matches the system requirements of the software that you need to set up. The full root access to your server will help you set up various other software, since the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You are able to access the server safely using a console, but in case you like better to use a web interface, you can set up any kind of Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you need to focus your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you can add the Managed Services upgrade and we will handle a variety of tasks for you, including weekly Operating System updates.
