Ubuntu, or 'linux for human beings' as they put it, is created by leading experts from around the world, functions ideally in a virtualization environment. Ubuntu VPS Hosting can be implemented as a remote desktop solution, or through the addition of the server packages, a standalone server.
Package management in a Ubuntu VPS hosting system utilizes the APT package manager, as well as a graphical software update tool for remote desktop implementations.
Virtualization provides several benefits when compared with a traditional shared hosting account on an Ubuntu server installation. An Ubuntu VPS is a great step between shared and dedicated Ubuntu hosting as it allows you to grow your available resources to match your sites growing needs. You will receive full rool access to your Ubuntu VPS. You can also conveniently manage your accounts, server configurations, and software installations all from your DotBlock control panel.
Because your Ubuntu VPS system is partitioned, your account will be completely secure and unaffected by other users. This segregation ensures that your server will have its own guaranteed resources (RAM, CPU) which will remain unaffected by other users on the system.
DotBlock has one version of Ubuntu available in our VPS Hosting environment. Currently you have access to turn-key installations of Ubuntu 12.04 and 13.04, with more versions to come in the near future.
