Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting quite popular too. The reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it'll run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will discover a number of resources on the net. One of the basic benefits of this OS is that it contains a large number of software packages that can be freely changed in accordance with your needs and the needs of the applications which you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We offer Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS servers and based on what requirements your web apps have, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with only a couple of clicks throughout the order process. If you get your server with no web hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be installed in addition to Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, therefore you are able to use a console to gain access to the server and to install a software environment of your liking.
