Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you will discover lots of resources online. Among the key advantages of this Operating System is that it features thousands of software packages which can be easily adjusted according to your needs as well as the requirements of the applications which 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 Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

We supply Ubuntu with our VPS web hosting and depending on what system requirements your web apps have, you are able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with just a few mouse clicks during the order process. When you get your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the only software that will be set up in addition to Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, thus you'll be able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to create a software environment of your choice. If you order your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have an online interface with which you'll be able to manage almost everything as easily as you control a standard shared account and all essential MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, but the root access to the server will be limited. If you do not have a lot of experience, or in case you do not plan to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you'll be able to take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, which features every week Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You're able to obtain Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages, as we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. Thus, you can choose the more appropriate of them, based on the type of apps that you need to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control of the software environment. We will install just the Apache web server software, so you are able to add whatever else you need, even when it is not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You can manage everything through a console, yet if you want, you may also set up a website hosting Control Panel, provided that it supports Ubuntu. If you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the newest software packages for a well-balanced and secure server environment.
