Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting really popular as well. The main reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it can function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you will find a number of resources on the net. Among the basic advantages of this OS is that it features tens of thousands of software packages that can be freely changed in accordance with your needs and the needs of the apps which you need 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 program code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
With all of our VPS web hosting plans, you're able to decide on the Ubuntu OS from the order page. We are aware of the fact that some programs have particular requirements in terms of the Operating System they are set up on, which means that you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. In addition, you can choose whether your VPS should come with our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll have everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you can make everything from your Internet browser, but the root access is limited; whereas in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, which means that you will be able to install anything freely due to the full root access that you'll be given, yet the server management tasks will be done from a console. Our admins will monitor your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis when you add the optional Managed Services package which we offer.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We supply Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the order page. We offer two editions, to ensure that the hosting server will meet the system requirements of the software that you'd like to install. The full root admission to your server will allow you to install any other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You're able to access the server safely from a console, but in case you prefer 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 need 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 plenty of tasks for you, which includes regular OS upgrades.
