Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it can function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will find a number of resources on the web. One of the main benefits of this OS is the fact that it features a large number of software packages that can be easily modified in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the apps that you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

Ubuntu is available with all of our Linux VPS web hosting and you can buy a VPS running it in just 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so you're able to select the one which you need if the software that you would like to run on the server has specific system requirements in this regard. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you'll be able to install anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have a world wide web interface and all the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a setup is more suitable for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this during the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You'll be able to acquire Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages, because we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this OS. In this way, you'll be able to pick the more appropriate of them, based on the type of apps which you need to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You will have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control of the software setting. We will set up just the Apache web server software, therefore you're able to add anything else you need, even if it is not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You will be able to control everything using a console, but if you would like, you may also install a website hosting Control Panel, as long as it's compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we'll maintain your Operating System up-to-date on a weekly basis and will make sure that you have the newest software packages for a well-balanced and protected server environment.
