Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting really popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it will function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover lots of resources on the Internet. Among the main advantages of this Operating System is that it has thousands of software packages that can be easily adjusted according to your needs and the needs of the applications which you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with all our VPS web hosting plans and you can buy a VPS running it in less than 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, which means that you can pick the one that you need when the software that you want to run on your hosting server has particular system requirements regarding this. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you'll be able to install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have a world wide web interface and all the required 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 will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

You are able to acquire Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans, considering that we supply 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this Operating System. This way, you're able to pick the more appropriate of these two, based on the type of apps that you want to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You'll 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, so you'll be able to add anything else you need, even when it's not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You can manage everything through a console, yet if you want, you may also set up a web hosting Control Panel, on condition that it supports Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your OS up-to-date on a weekly basis and will ensure that you have the most recent software packages for a reliable and risk-free server environment.
