Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting pretty popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it'll function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a protected and dependable software environment on your server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, so if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you will discover a number of resources on the Internet. Among the main benefits of this OS is the fact that it contains tens of thousands of software packages which can be easily adjusted according to 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 kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with each virtual private server plan that we provide and everything is set up within an hour, so you'll be able to start using the VPS without delay. We offer two separate versions due to the fact that some pieces of software have specific requirements in order to function efficiently. You will be able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get an online interface and all of the software that is necessary for your sites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it with no Control Panel, you will receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so that you will be able to install other software through Secure Shell. If you decide to add our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will monitor your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You'll be able to obtain Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans, as we offer 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this Operating System. This way, you're able to choose the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of apps that you would like 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 give you full control over the software environment. We will install only the Apache web server software, therefore you're able to add anything else you will need, even when it is not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You're able to control everything from a console, yet if you want, you can also install a hosting Control Panel, provided that it supports Ubuntu. In case you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we'll maintain your Operating System up-to-date on a weekly basis and will make sure that you have the newest software packages for a reliable and secure server environment.
