Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is amazingly light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a protected and stable software environment on your server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover plenty of resources on the Internet. Among the basic benefits of this OS is the fact that it has tens of thousands of software packages which can be easily changed according to your needs as well as the requirements of the apps that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
When the applications that you need to run require Ubuntu and lots of system resources, you can select one of our dedicated servers
and add this Operating System to your order with a single click. You can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS, depending on which edition your applications need to function properly and to get the most of the server hardware. Due to the fact that you will have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on your machine and you will be able to set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not include a hosting Control Panel, and you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, but if you want, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your Internet sites. When you don't want to lose time maintaining the server, you can take full advantage of the Managed Services package, that features countless tasks done by our system administrators on your behalf. The package includes routine updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
