The Operating System is regarded as being really dependable and secure, not to mention that as a result of its popularity, you'll find lots of sources online with information about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, so you will be able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareissues over time. Due to the fact that Ubuntu is totally free to use, you're able to customize both its core and the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and install in any way you see fit, without any limitations and without any license fees. In this way, you will acquire an effective, dependable and powerful web hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
If the apps that you would like to run require Ubuntu and a lot of system resources, you should choose one of our dedicated web hosting plans and add this Operating System to your order with a click. You can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS, depending on which release your applications 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 will be able to install anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not include a hosting Control Panel, so you can manage your content through a Secure Shell console, but if you want, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to take care of your sites. When you don't want to lose time controlling the server, you can take advantage of our Managed Services package, that features countless tasks done by our admins on your behalf. The package features routine updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
