Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is amazingly light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will discover numerous resources on the net. One of the basic advantages of this OS is the fact that it has a large number of software packages that can be freely modified in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the apps which you intend to run, not to mention that you won't 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, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We offer Ubuntu with our VPS hosting plans and depending on what system requirements your web apps have, you are able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with only a few mouse clicks during the registration process. When you get your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, thus you are able to use a console in order to access the server and to create a software environment of your liking. When you get your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you are able to control almost everything as easily as you manage a regular shared account and all important MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to the server will be limited. When you don't have a lot of experience, or if you do not want to waste time on VPS management procedures, you're able to reap the benefits of the Managed Services upgrade, that features once a week Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the OS options which you'll find on our order page if you want to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, to satisfy the system requirements of the apps that you wish to set up on the server. You may also choose the software which will operate on your machine, since we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be tailor-made software of your liking. You'll be able to install the latter without problems employing a Secure Shell console, since you'll receive root-level access and you will have full control over your server. You can set up a website hosting Control Panel too and control some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, contains OS updates.
