Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it'll run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you will have a protected and stable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will discover numerous resources on the Internet. Among the key benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it features tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the applications which you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We supply Ubuntu with all our VPS hosting plans and depending on what requirements your web applications have, you can get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with only a couple of clicks throughout the order process. When you order your server devoid of website hosting Control Panel, the only software which will be set up in addition to Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to use a console to gain access to the website hosting server and to set up a software environment that you choose. When you order your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll have a world wide web interface with which you'll be able to manage almost everything just as easily as you control an ordinary shared account and all of the essential MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to the server is limited. If you don't have a lot of experience, or if you do not want to waste time on VPS management procedures, you can reap the benefits of the Managed Services upgrade, that features every week Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is among the Operating System options that you can find on our order page when you decide to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, to meet the system requirements of the applications that you want to set up on the server. You may also choose the software which will operate on your machine, as we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom-made software of your liking. You are able to install the latter without any problems through a Secure Shell console, since you'll get root-level access and you'll get full control over the hosting server. You are free to set up a website hosting Control Panel too and control some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, contains Operating System upgrades.
