What is Ubuntu

“Ubuntu” is an ancient African word, meaning “humanity to others”. The Ubuntu distribution brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the software world. It is an open source operating system for computers which is based on the Debian architecture (Linux Distribution). It generally keeps running on PCs and is well known on network servers, normally running the Ubuntu Server variant, with business class features. Ubuntu keeps running on the most famous designs, including Intel, AMD, and ARM-based machines. Ubuntu is additionally accessible for tablets and smartphones, with the Ubuntu Touch edition release.

The Ubuntu manifesto preaches 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.

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:
