Ubuntu - the Linux Distribution which began small and is already among the most common Operating Systems available. Learn more about its benefits and drawbacks.
Ubuntu is one of the most widespread Linux versions for desktop machines, but the Operating System also has a server release, that has been gaining in popularity recently. Ubuntu is extremely fast and supports numerous hardware components, so it can run on pretty much any kind of machine not using too much system resources. The OS is widely known as pretty dependable and secure, not to mention that because of its popularity, you will find many different sources online with information about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, so you can get security patches without worrying about softwareproblems in the long term. As Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you'll be able to customize both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and install in any way you find fit, with no restrictions and without having to pay any license fees. This way, you will obtain a rapid, secure and powerful website hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Ubuntu is among the OS options that you will find on our registration page in case you want to get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting. We'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, so as to satisfy the system requirements of the apps which you want to install on the server. You can also choose the software that will operate on your machine, since we will install only the Apache web server software, so all else can be tailor-made software of your choice. You're able to install the latter without any problems from a Secure Shell console, since you'll get root-level access and you'll get full control over your hosting server. You can install a hosting Control Panel too and control some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, contains Operating System upgrades.
