Ubuntu - the Linux Distribution which started small and is now one of the most popular Operating Systems on the market. Read more about its pros and cons.
Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting very popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it'll function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you will find numerous resources on the web. One of the major benefits of this Operating System is that it features tens of thousands of software packages that can be easily customized in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the apps that you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

When the apps that you wish to run require Ubuntu as well as plenty of resources, you should opt for one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and add this OS to your order with a click. You are able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the Operating System, depending on which release your applications need in order to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware.
