Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it'll function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will discover numerous resources on the Internet. Among the key advantages of this OS is the fact that it contains numerous software packages which can be freely modified according to your needs and the requirements of the apps that you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We provide Ubuntu with our VPS plans and depending on what system requirements your web applications have, you are able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with just a couple of mouse clicks throughout the registration process. If you order your server with no hosting Control Panel, the sole software that will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you're able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to set up a software environment that you choose. When you order your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you can control almost everything as easily as you control a standard shared account and all required MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, however the root access to your server is limited. If you do not have much experience, or in case you don't like to waste time on VPS control procedures, you'll be able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We offer Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the order page. We supply two versions, in order to make sure that the server will match the system requirements of the software that you want to set up. The full root accessibility to your server will enable you to install various other software, because the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You are able to access the server securely from a console, however in case you prefer to use a web interface, you're free to install any kind of Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you want to focus your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will handle a variety of tasks for you, among them regular Operating System updates.
