Ubuntu - the Linux Distribution that started small and is now among the most well-known OSes in existence. Learn more about its pros and cons.
Ubuntu is among the most popular Linux distributions for personal computers, but the Operating System also has a server edition, which has been becoming more popular lately. Ubuntu is very quick and supports numerous hardware components, so it can work on virtually any kind of computer not using an excessive amount of system resources. The OS is widely known as really reliable and secure, plus due to its popularity, you'll find numerous 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're able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareproblems over time. Since Ubuntu is totally free to use, you're able to customize both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and set up in any way you see fit, devoid of limitations and without any license fees. This way, you can get an effective, stable and powerful web hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is among the OS options which you'll find on our order page when you choose to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, to satisfy the system requirements of the applications which you'd like to install on the server. You may also choose the software that will operate on your machine, as we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be custom software of your liking. You're able to install the latter without any problems through a Secure Shell console, because you'll have root-level access and you will have full control over the server. You are free to set up a website hosting Control Panel as well and manage some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, contains OS upgrades.
