Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting pretty popular too. The reason is that the OS is amazingly light and it can function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you will find plenty of resources on the net. Among the major advantages of this OS is the fact that it includes tens of thousands of software packages that can be freely changed in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You are able to get Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages, as we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this OS. Thus, you will be able to pick the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of applications which you want to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control over the software environment. We will set up only the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to add everything else you need, even if it is not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You're able to control everything through a console, however if you would like, you may also install a web hosting Control Panel, as long as it supports Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will make sure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a stable and safe server environment.
