Ubuntu - the Linux Distribution that began small and has grown to be one of the most preferred Operating Systems out there. Find out more about its advantages and disadvantages.
Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it can run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any issue or have any question, you will discover a number of resources online. Among the major advantages of this Operating System is that it contains thousands of software packages that can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs and the needs of the applications which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with only a click on the registration page. We offer two editions, so as to ensure that the hosting server matches the requirements of the software that you wish to set up. The full root access to your server will help you install various other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You're able to access the server securely using a console, yet in case you prefer to use a world wide web interface, you are free to install any kind of Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you would like to focus your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you'll be able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle a number of tasks for you, including once a week OS updates.
