Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting really popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is very light and it will function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you will have a protected and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will discover lots of resources on the web. Among the main advantages of this OS is that it has numerous software packages which can be freely modified according to your needs and the requirements of the applications which you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When the applications that you need to run require Ubuntu and plenty of resources, you can opt for one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and add this Operating System to your order with a click. You can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of your OS, depending on which release 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'll have full control over the software environment on the machine and you will be able to set up anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't contain a website 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 manage your sites. When you don't want to lose time maintaining the web hosting server, you can employ our Managed Services package, that includes numerous tasks performed by our sysadmins on your behalf. The package includes routine updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
