Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting really popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is very light and it'll function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will find plenty of resources on the Internet. One of the key advantages of this OS is that it includes a large number of software packages which can be easily adjusted according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
When the apps that you would like to run require Ubuntu as well as lots of system resources, you should opt for one of our dedicated servers and add this OS to your order with just a single click. You will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the Operating System, according to which edition your apps need to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Since you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on your machine and you can install anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't feature a hosting Control Panel, and you can manage your content using a Secure Shell console, but if you want, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to command your websites. If you do not want to lose time controlling your server, you can reap the benefits of the Managed Services package, which includes numerous tasks done by our system administrators on your behalf. The upgrade comes with routine updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
