Ubuntu is among the most widespread Linux editions for desktop computers, yet the OS also has a server edition, that has been gaining in popularity nowadays. Ubuntu is very fast and supports various hardware components, so it can run on virtually every computer not consuming too much resources. The OS is regarded as being pretty reliable and secure, not to mention that as a result of 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 a minimum of 5 years, so you are able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareissues in the long run. Because Ubuntu is totally free to use, you'll 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 see fit, without any restrictions and without any license fees. This way, you'll obtain an effective, stable and powerful website hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is among the Operating System options that you'll find on our registration page in case you want to obtain one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, in order to match the system requirements of the applications which you'd like to set up on the server. You can also select the software which will operate on your machine, because we will install only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be tailor-made software that you choose. You can set up the latter without problems by using a Secure Shell console, because you'll get root-level access and you will have full control over your hosting server. You can install a web hosting Control Panel too and manage some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, contains OS upgrades.
