Ubuntu VPS Hosting
We offer Ubuntu VPS hosting on OpenVZ or KVM virtualization.
We have 32-bit and 64-bit versions available, plus minimal versions with the bare-minimum installed packages so you can install only what you need.
Ubuntu is a Debian-based Linux operating system and distribution for personal computers, smartphones and network servers. It uses Unity as its default user interface. It is based on free software and named after the Southern African philosophy of ubuntu (literally, “human-ness”), which often is translated as “humanity towards others” or “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity”.
Development of Ubuntu is led by UK-based Canonical Ltd., a company owned by South African entrepreneur Mark Shuttleworth. Canonical generates revenue through the sale of technical support and other services related to Ubuntu. The Ubuntu project is publicly committed to the principles of open-source software development; people are encouraged to use free software, study how it works, improve upon it, and distribute it.
Ubuntu on BHost
We use Ubuntu for many of our production systems so we’re big fans of the operation system. We support Ubuntu on both our OpenVZ and KVM virtualisation systems. To learn more about OpenVZ vs KVM please see our help center article.
Ubuntu VPS hosting is available at our London, Amsterdam and Fremont, CA locations.
Ubuntu provide a standard release and a Long Term Support version (LTS). Standard release gets security updates for 9 months, while LTS gets security updates for 5 years. We always encourage customers to opt for an LTS version.
If you need a different operating system, we’ll be happy to help. We already offer CentOS, Debian and Fedora plus FreeBSD. Generally speaking if an OS is installable from an ISO we can add it to our available distros. Please contact sales@BHost.net with your requirements.
