Ubuntu is among the most widespread Linux releases for desktop machines, yet the Operating System also has a server release, which has been becoming more popular these days. Ubuntu is really quick and supports multiple hardware components, so it can run on pretty much every server without consuming a lot of resources. The OS is regarded as being really dependable and secure, plus because of its popularity, you will find many different sources online with information about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, so you are able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareissues in the long term. Since Ubuntu is free to use, you are able to customize both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and set up in any way you find fit, with no restrictions and without paying any license fees. In this way, you'll obtain a quick, secure and powerful 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 decide to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, to match the system requirements of the applications which you would like to set up on the server. You may also choose the software which will operate on your machine, since we will install only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be custom-made software of your liking. You will be able to set up the latter without problems from a Secure Shell console, as you'll have root-level access and you will have full control of the hosting server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel as well and control some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, contains OS updates.
