Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is very light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely 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 stable software environment on your hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will discover a number of resources online. One of the key benefits of this OS is the fact that it features a large number of software packages which can be freely changed according to your needs as well as the requirements of the applications that you'd like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS hosting and you can acquire a VPS running it in just an hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, which means that you're able to select the one that you need if the software that you would like to run on the hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you'll 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 web interface and all the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of installation is more effective for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this during the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

You are able to obtain Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans, considering that we provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. This way, you'll be able to choose the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of apps which you wish to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control over the software setting. We'll set up just the Apache web server software, therefore you'll be able to add anything else you will need, even when it is not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You are able to control everything using a console, but if you want, you may also install a hosting Control Panel, provided that it supports Ubuntu. When you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your OS up-to-date on a weekly basis and will ensure that you have the newest software packages for a well-balanced and risk-free server environment.
