Ubuntu - the Linux Distribution that started small and is currently among the most common OSes in existence. Read more about its pros and cons.
Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting really popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it can function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you will discover numerous resources online. Among the major benefits of this OS is that it contains tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely adjusted according to your needs and the requirements of the apps which you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
We supply Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the registration page. We offer two versions, so as to ensure that the server will meet the system requirements of the software that you need to set up. The full root access to your server allows you to set up various other software, because the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You are able to access the server safely using a console, yet in case you would like to use a web interface, you can set up any Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to focus your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you'll be able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of a variety of tasks for you, among them weekly Operating System updates.
