Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is really light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll discover plenty of resources on the Internet. One of the basic benefits of this OS is that it has tens of thousands of software packages which can be easily customized in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the applications that you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you will be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with each VPS server plan that we provide and everything is set up within an hour, which means that you will be able to start using the VPS without delay. We offer two different editions because certain programs have certain requirements to operate properly. You can control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface and all of the software which is required for your sites will be pre-installed; while in case you order it devoid of Control Panel, you'll get just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you can set up additional software employing Secure Shell. When you decide to include our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our admins will monitor your server and will update Ubuntu regularly.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We offer Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with only a click on the order page. We provide two versions, to ensure that the hosting server will match the system requirements of the software that you wish to set up. The full root access to the server allows you to set up various other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server securely from a console, but if you like better to use an online interface, you can install any Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you want to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will handle plenty of tasks for you, among them weekly OS upgrades.
