Ubuntu is one of the most widely used Linux editions for desktop computers, but the OS also has a server version, that has been gaining popularity recently. Ubuntu is very quick and supports numerous hardware components, so it can run on pretty much any kind of server without using too much resources. The Operating System is regarded as being pretty reliable and secure, not to mention that due to its popularity, you will find lots of sources online with info about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, so you'll be able to get security patches without worrying about softwareissues over time. Due to the fact that Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you will be able to modify both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and install in any way you find fit, without any restrictions and without any license fees. In this way, you'll obtain a rapid, secure and powerful web hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to get Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans, as we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this OS. In this way, you will be able to pick the more appropriate of the two, based on the type of apps which you would like to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control of the software setting. We'll set up only the Apache web server software, so you are able to add anything else you need, even when it's not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You will be able to manage everything using a console, but if you want, you may also install a website hosting Control Panel, when it supports Ubuntu. If you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your OS up-to-date every week and will make sure that you have the newest software packages for a well-balanced and risk-free server environment.
