Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting very popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll find plenty of resources on the Internet. One of the main advantages of this OS is the fact that it includes a large number of software packages that can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs and the needs of the apps which you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with all our VPS hosting plans and you can obtain a VPS running it in just sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so that you're able to choose the one that you need if the software that you want to run on the web hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed without a Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you can set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have a web interface and all required web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of setup is more efficient for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so throughout the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

You can acquire Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans, considering that we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. In this way, you can pick the more appropriate of these two, based on the type of apps that you'd like to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control over the software environment. We'll set up only the Apache web server software, therefore you can add everything else you will need, even when it's not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You can manage everything from a console, but if you would like, you may also install a website hosting Control Panel, as long as it is compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your Operating System up-to-date every week and will ensure that you have the latest software packages for a reliable and protected server environment.
