Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting really popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources online. Among the key benefits of this Operating System is that it includes a large number of software packages which can be freely customized in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the apps which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We provide Ubuntu with our VPS servers and based on what requirements your web applications have, you can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with just a couple of mouse clicks during the registration process. If you obtain your server without a web hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be installed along with Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, therefore you'll be able to use a console to access the hosting server and to build a software environment of your liking. When you order your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface with which you are able to manage almost everything as easily as you manage an ordinary shared account and all necessary MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, however the root access to the server is limited. If you don't have much experience, or in case you don't wish to waste time on VPS control procedures, you will be able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which features once a week Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

You are able to get Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans, considering that we supply 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this OS. This way, you're able to select the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of applications which you wish to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control over the software setting. We'll install only the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to add everything else you need, even when it is not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You are able to control everything from a console, however if you would like, you may also install a website hosting Control Panel, as long as it's compatible with Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the newest software packages for a stable and protected server environment.
