Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting really popular too. The reason is that the operating system is very light and it will function 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 should have a secure and stable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will find plenty of resources on the Internet. Among the major benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it includes thousands of software packages that can be easily customized according to your needs and the requirements of the applications that you would like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
When the apps that you need to run require Ubuntu as well as a lot of resources, you can choose our Linux dedicated service and add this OS to your order with a click. You're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of the OS, according to which edition your apps need to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. As you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on your machine and you can set up anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't come with a hosting Control Panel, which means that you can manage your content using a Secure Shell console, but if you would like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to take care of your websites. If you don't want to lose time supervising your hosting server, you can employ the Managed Services package, which includes a lot of tasks performed by our sysadmins on your behalf. The package comes with routine updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
