Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting really popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you will find a number of resources online. Among the main benefits of this Operating System is that it contains a great number of software packages which can be easily customized in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the apps that you wish 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 program code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you are able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each virtual private server package that we offer and everything will be set up within one hour, so you'll be able to start using your VPS without delay. We offer two different versions since certain programs have particular requirements so as to function effectively. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface and the software that is needed for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it without any Control Panel, you will receive just the OS and the Apache web server software, so that you are able to install other software employing Secure Shell. When you decide to include the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep an eye on your server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can acquire Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages, as we supply 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this OS. This way, you can select the more appropriate of the two, depending on the type of apps that you'd like to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the Operating System. You will have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control over the software environment. We'll install only the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to add whatever else you will need, even if it's not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You can manage everything from a console, but if you want, you can also set up a website hosting Control Panel, when it's compatible with Ubuntu. If you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a reliable and secure server environment.
