Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will find a number of resources on the Internet. Among the basic benefits of this Operating System is that it has a great number of software packages that can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications that you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS servers and you can purchase a VPS running it in less than sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, which means that you can pick the one that you need when the software that you wish to run on your website hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you will be able to install anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have a world wide web interface and all the required web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of installation is more effective for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We offer Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with just a click on the registration page. We provide two versions, in order to ensure that the hosting server will meet the requirements of the software that you wish to set up. The full root admission to your server will help you install various other software, because the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You can access the server securely through a console, however if you like better to use a web interface, you are free to set up any kind of Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you can add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of various tasks for you, including weekly OS upgrades.
