Ubuntu is among the most widely used Linux distributions for personal computers, however the OS also has a server edition, which has been gaining in popularity recently. Ubuntu is very fast and supports a variety of hardware components, so it can work on pretty much any server without consuming an excessive amount of system resources. The OS is considered to be very dependable and secure, plus because of its popularity, you'll find lots of sources online with information about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, so you can get security patches without worrying about softwareproblems over time. Because Ubuntu is totally free to use, you will be able to modify both its core and the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and install in any way you find fit, devoid of limitations and without any license fees. In this way, you'll get an effective, secure and powerful web hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
You can get Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans, since we provide 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this OS. This way, you're able to choose the more appropriate of them, depending on the type of applications which you want to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control of the software setting. We'll install only the Apache web server software, therefore you'll be able to add whatever else you may need, even if it's not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You'll be able to control everything from a console, yet if you would like, you can also set up a web hosting Control Panel, provided that it's compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your OS up-to-date every week and will make sure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a stable and protected server environment.
