Have your own dedicated server with Ubuntu installed on hardware or an Ubuntu VM in our cloud. You are root (OK, it’s Ubuntu… so you can sudo), do whatever you want with it. No minimum term, no setup fee.
Ubuntu is a complete Linux-based operating system. Ubuntu uses the “apt” package manager, which users of Debian Linux will be familiar with, and a huge library of pre-compiled packages (over 16,000). It is very easy to install, update and remove software in your Ubuntu system. Ubuntu is Open Source software and the Ubuntu operating system is free of cost. In practical use, it is perfect for the person that wants the stability but does not require the commercial support and cost that commercial products offer.
The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu Philosophy: 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 customize and alter their software in whatever way they see fit.
