Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it will function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a secure and dependable software environment on your hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will find plenty of resources on the net. Among the key advantages of this Operating System is that it has a great number of software packages that can be freely customized in accordance with 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 license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each and every virtual private server plan that we offer and everything will be set up within one hour, which means that you're able to start using the VPS without delay. We provide two separate versions since some pieces of software have specific requirements to work effectively. You can control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface and all of the software which is needed for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it with no Control Panel, you will receive just the OS and the Apache web server software, so you will be able to install other software using Secure Shell. When you choose to add the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will monitor your server and will update Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
We supply Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with just a click on the registration page. We supply two releases, to make sure that the server meets the system requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root accessibility to your server allows you to set up any other software, since the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You are able to access the server safely using a console, yet if you would like to use a world wide web interface, you're free to set up any kind of Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to focus your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you are able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle a variety of tasks for you, including weekly Operating System updates.
