UK Web Hosting: FreeBSD

On January 21, 2011 · 0 Comments

FreeBSD is a scarcely used operating system developed by the Berkeley labs. Although it can be hard to find a UK web hosting company that provides BSD OS for the server to host your web server you can still request from the company a BSD based server. This is especially if you are not sharing your server with anyone but own the whole stock and barely any of the server. FreeBSD machines are harder to manage than a Linux or a Windows machine since the tools are not that much developed and configuring them on CLI is painful at best. The advantage of a FreeBSD server is that it is considered one of the most secure operating systems in the world and hence is used for high profile transactions. Free BSD server is also known for a minimum number of bugs in its code. A new version of high profile BSD servers is available in the market that can be very expensive fot the uninitiated buyer.
