Ubuntu is among the most widespread Linux distributions for desktop machines, but the OS also has a server edition, which has been becoming more popular recently. Ubuntu is very quick and supports a number of hardware components, so it can function on virtually every server not consuming too much system resources. The OS is regarded as being really reliable and secure, plus due to its popularity, you'll find a number of sources online with information about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, so you can get security patches without worrying about softwareissues in the long term. Because Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you will be able to modify both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and install in any way you find fit, with no restrictions and without paying any license fees. This way, you will get a rapid, stable and powerful hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options which you will find on our order page when you decide to acquire one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, to meet the system requirements of the applications that you intend to set up on the server. You may also select the software which will run on your machine, since we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be custom software that you choose. You are able to install the latter without problems employing a Secure Shell console, as you'll receive root-level access and you will get full control over the hosting server. You can set up a web hosting Control Panel as well and manage some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, includes Operating System updates.
