Ubuntu is among the most widely used Linux releases for desktop machines, but the OS also has a server release, which has been gaining in popularity recently. Ubuntu is really quick and supports multiple hardware components, so it can work on virtually any server without consuming an excessive amount of resources. The OS is considered to be pretty reliable and secure, not to mention that due to its popularity, you will find a number of sources online with info about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, so you're able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareissues over time. Due to the fact that Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you're able to modify both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and set up in any way you see fit, without any limitations and without paying any license fees. In this way, you will get a fast, stable and powerful web hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
When the apps that you would like to run require Ubuntu as well as lots of resources, you should select our dedicated web hosting plans and add this OS to your order with a click. You're able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of your OS, depending on which edition your apps need in order to work properly and to get the most of the server hardware. As you will have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on your machine and you can install anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not come with a website hosting Control Panel, which means that you can manage your content through a Secure Shell console, but if you want, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to control your web sites. If you don't want to lose time supervising the web hosting server, you can employ our Managed Services package, that includes a lot of tasks done by our system administrators on your behalf. The package includes regular updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
