Ubuntu is among the most preferred Linux editions for desktop machines, yet the OS also has a server version, which has been becoming more popular these days. Ubuntu is very fast and supports numerous hardware components, so it can work on virtually every computer without using too much system resources. The OS is considered to be very reliable and secure, not to mention that as a result of its popularity, you will find a number of 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'll be able to get security patches without worrying about softwaretroubles over time. Due to the fact that Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you can 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 will obtain a rapid, dependable and powerful hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
Ubuntu is among the Operating System options which you can find on our order page if you want to get one of our Linux dedicated hosting. We will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, in order to match the system requirements of the applications that you wish to set up on the server. You can also select the software which will operate on your machine, due to the fact that we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom software of your liking. You'll be able to install the latter without any problems using a Secure Shell console, as you'll get root-level access and you will have full control of the server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel as well and control some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, contains OS upgrades.
