Ubuntu is one of the most preferred Linux versions for desktop machines, yet the Operating System also has a server version, that has been gaining popularity these days. Ubuntu is very fast and supports a variety of hardware components, so it can function on virtually any server not using an excessive amount of system resources. The Operating System is regarded as being pretty reliable and secure, plus due to its popularity, you'll 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 five years, so you can get security patches without worrying about softwaretroubles over time. As Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you can customize both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and install in any way you see fit, devoid of limitations and without paying any license fees. This way, you'll acquire a quick, secure and powerful website hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you can find on our order page in case you want to acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, to satisfy the system requirements of the applications which you need to install on the server. You may also select the software which will run on your machine, since we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be tailor-made software that you choose. You are able to install the latter without problems from a Secure Shell console, because you will receive root-level access and you will have full control of your server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel too and manage some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, contains Operating System upgrades.
