Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it will function on almost any hardware with no 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 five years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you will find a number of resources on the Internet. Among the key benefits of this OS is that it includes tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely adjusted in accordance with your needs and the needs of the apps that you need to run, not to mention that you will not 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 can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
Ubuntu is available with all our VPS web hosting and you can purchase a VPS running it in less than one hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so that you will be able to select the one which you need when the software that you wish to run on your server has particular system requirements in this regard. 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 can set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have an online interface and all of the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but such a setup is more suitable 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 so during the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options which you can find on our registration page when you decide to acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting. We will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, in order to satisfy the system requirements of the applications that you want to set up on the server. You may also choose the software that will operate on your machine, because we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be tailor-made software of your liking. You are able to install the latter without any problems employing a Secure Shell console, because you will get root-level access and you'll get full control over your server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel too and control some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features OS updates.
