Discover more about Ubuntu, how this tiny Linux distro has taken the world by storm and why it’s today so popular.
Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll find lots of resources on the net. Among the major advantages of this OS is the fact that it has a great number of software packages that can be easily modified according to your needs as well as the requirements of the applications that you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We supply Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the order page. We offer two editions, to make sure that the server meets the requirements of the software that you wish to install. The full root accessibility to your server will help you install various other software, because the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server safely through a console, yet if you would like to use an online interface, you're free to set up any Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you need to focus your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you'll be able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle various tasks for you, including once a week Operating System updates.
