Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting pretty popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is extremely light and it will run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a protected and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any issue or have any question, you will discover plenty of resources on the Internet. Among the basic benefits of this OS is the fact that it contains tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely adjusted according to your needs and the needs of the apps that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each and every virtual private server plan that we offer and everything will be set up within one hour, therefore you'll be able to start using the VPS right away. We provide two different editions because certain pieces of software have certain requirements so as to function properly. You can manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive an online interface and all of the software which is required for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it with no Control Panel, you will get only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to set up additional software using Secure Shell. When you choose to include the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep an eye on your server and will update Ubuntu regularly.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
We offer Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the registration page. We offer two editions, to make sure that the server will match the requirements of the software that you would like to install. The full root admission to the server will enable you to install any other software, since the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You are able to access the server safely using a console, however if you would like to use a web interface, you're free to install any kind of Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to focus your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you can add our Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of a number of tasks for you, which includes once a week OS upgrades.
