Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular too. The reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it will function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very 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 web hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will find lots of resources on the Internet. One of the key advantages of this Operating System is that it comes with thousands of software packages that can be freely changed according to your needs and / or the requirements of the apps which you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each and every virtual private server package that we offer and everything will be set up within one hour, so you can start using your VPS right away. We offer two separate editions because certain pieces of software have certain requirements to work efficiently. You can control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface and the software which is required for your sites will be pre-installed; while in case you order it devoid of Control Panel, you'll get just the OS and the Apache web server software, so you will be able to set up other software employing Secure Shell. If you choose to add our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep an eye on your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You're able to obtain Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans, considering that we supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. In this way, you can select the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of apps which you want to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control of the software setting. We'll set up only the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to add whatever else you will need, even if it is not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You'll be able to manage everything through a console, yet if you want, you can also install a hosting Control Panel, provided that it is compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your Operating System up-to-date every week and will ensure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a reliable and safe server environment.
