What is Ubuntu

Ubuntu is a Debian-based Linux operating system.  Ubuntu packages are based on packages from Debian's unstable branch, using Debian's DEB package format and package management tools.
 
The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu Manifesto: that software should be available free of charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to customise and alter their software in whatever way they see fit. "Ubuntu" is an ancient African word, meaning "humanity to others". The Ubuntu distribution brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the software world.
 
Ubuntu is a good choice for users that want more up-to-date packages but the package management and operating system architecture of Debian.
Available Architectures:

  • INSTANT PROVISIONING ›› Service is setup and ready to use in just a few minutes after payment
  • ON-DEMAND OS RELOADS ›› Reload the VPS operating system any time, even change distributions
  • ROOT ACCESS (SSH) ›› Complete administrative control of the server, including applications and software
  • BACKUP MANAGEMENT ›› Access daily snapshots, manage your own backups, restore, clone, datacenter migration, and more...
  • RESCUE CONSOLE ›› Out of band SSH console to access VPS server
  • MANY MORE ›› Reverse DNS, Detailed Statistics, On-the-fly Adjustable Resources...

Generally any software that will run on a Linux dedicated server will run in an OpenVZ based Ubuntu VPS environment.

Below are some examples of common software our customers are running in their VPSs:

Every Ubuntu VPS is provisioned with a static IPv6 address in addition to a static IPv4 address. This allows all IPv6 compatible applications and services running in the VPS to be accessible to clients on native (or tunneled) IPv6 networks.

With IPv4 address space depleting fast, be ahead of the transition to IPv6.

Dahdi (Digium/Asterisk Hardware Device Interface) timing can optionally be enabled for any Ubuntu VPS. This facilitates supporting certain functionality within the Asterisk PBX software, including conferencing. Several FAQ articles are provided in our Knowledgebase outlining the compilation procedure if building Asterisk from source.

Other PBX software can be installed in a Ubuntu VPS as well, including:

or software to provide GUI-based configuration, billing, or predictive dialer capabilities to Asterisk:
