Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The reason is that the OS is amazingly light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will discover plenty of resources on the Internet. Among the major benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it contains a large number of software packages that can be freely modified according to your needs and the needs of the applications that you intend 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 code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

We supply Ubuntu with our Linux VPS and based on what system requirements your web applications have, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with just a couple of clicks during the order process. If you get your server devoid of website hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to use a console in order to access the website hosting server and to install a software environment that you choose. If you acquire your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you will be able to control almost everything as quickly as you manage a standard shared account and all required MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, but the root access to your server will be restricted. If you don't have much experience, or in case you do not like to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you are able to reap the benefits of the Managed Services upgrade, that features regular Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to get Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans, because we provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this OS. In this way, you will be able to pick the more appropriate of them, based on the type of applications which you need to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control over the software setting. We will install just the Apache web server software, which means that you can add anything else you need, even when it is not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You're able to manage everything from a console, however if you want, you can also set up a website hosting Control Panel, when it supports Ubuntu. If you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your Operating System up-to-date on a weekly basis and will make sure that you have the most recent software packages for a stable and protected server environment.
