Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular as well. The reason is that the OS is really light and it can run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, so if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you will find a number of resources on the Internet. One of the main benefits of this Operating System is that it features thousands of software packages that can be freely customized in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications that you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at all. 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 Linux VPS web hosting and you can purchase a VPS running it in less than 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so you can choose the one that you need when the software that you would like to run on your server has specific system requirements regarding this. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you will be able to set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have a world wide web interface and all of the required web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but such a setup is more effective for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

We supply Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the registration page. We offer two versions, so as to make sure that the hosting server matches the system requirements of the software that you want to set up. The full root access to the server will enable you to install various other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You can access the server securely using a console, yet if you like better to use a world wide web interface, you're free to install any Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you need to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of various tasks for you, which includes once a week OS upgrades.
