Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is very light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you will discover lots of resources online. One of the key advantages of this Operating System is that it has thousands of software packages which can be freely changed according to your needs and the needs of the applications which you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS hosting packages and depending on what requirements your web apps have, you will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with only a few clicks throughout the registration process. When you get your server without a hosting Control Panel, the sole software that will be set up in addition to Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, therefore you can use a console in order to access the server and to set up a software environment that you choose. When you acquire your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you are able to control almost everything just as easily as you control a regular shared account and all of the vital MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, but the root access to your server will be limited. If you do not have much experience, or if you do not wish to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you will be able to take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which features regular Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the order page. We offer two releases, in order to make sure that the server will meet the system requirements of the software that you want to set up. The full root admission to the server will allow you to install any other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You can access the server safely through a console, yet in case you like better to use a web interface, you can set up any Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you would like to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you're able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle numerous tasks for you, among them regular OS updates.
