Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it'll function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll find numerous resources on the net. Among the major benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it has tens of thousands of software packages that can be easily changed according to your needs and / or the needs of the applications which you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We supply Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS hosting service and depending on what requirements your web applications have, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with only a couple of mouse clicks during the registration process. When you obtain your server with no web hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software that will be set up on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to use a console to gain access to the server and to build a software environment of your choice.
