Ubuntu is among the most preferred Linux versions for personal computers, however the OS also has a server release, which has been gaining in popularity lately. Ubuntu is really quick and supports multiple hardware components, so it can work on pretty much every computer without consuming an excessive amount of system resources. The Operating System is widely known as very dependable and secure, not to mention that as a result of 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 five years, so you are able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareissues in the long term. Since Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you'll be able to modify both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and set up in any way you see fit, without any restrictions and without paying any license fees. In this way, you'll receive a quick, stable and powerful website hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you will find on our order page in case you want to obtain one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, so as to satisfy the system requirements of the apps that you wish to install on the server. You can also choose the software that will operate on your machine, as we will set up only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom software of your choice. You'll be able to install the latter without any problems from a Secure Shell console, since you will have root-level access and you will have full control of the server. You are free to set up a hosting Control Panel as well and control some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, includes Operating System upgrades.
