Hi @murni,

I don’t think this is possible, unfortunately. You can’t install an Ubuntu Desktop version and operate it as a laptop or at least as far as I’m aware.

Having said that, what you can do is, install some kind of a Website Panel to host your websites on it but this is different than using it as a GUI of Ubuntu.
