Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is extremely light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll find a number of resources on the web. Among the basic benefits of this Operating System is that it features numerous software packages that can be easily modified according to your needs and / or the needs of the applications which you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

We supply Ubuntu with our Linux VPS services and based on what system requirements your web applications have, you're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with just a couple of mouse clicks throughout the registration process. If you get your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be set up along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you're able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to set up a software environment of your liking. When you get your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you will be able to control almost everything just as easily as you manage a regular shared account and all necessary MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to your server is limited. If you don't have a lot of experience, or if you do not like to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you are able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that features every week Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

You can acquire Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans, as we offer 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this OS. Thus, you can pick the more appropriate of them, based on the type of applications that you want to install and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control over the software environment. We will set up just the Apache web server software, so you're able to add everything else you need, even when it is not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You will be able to control everything from a console, however if you would like, you can also set up a hosting Control Panel, on condition that it is compatible with Ubuntu. When you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we'll maintain your OS up-to-date weekly and will make sure that you have the latest software packages for a reliable and secure server environment.
