Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting really popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it'll run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will discover numerous resources on the net. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is that it includes thousands of software packages that can be easily changed in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the apps which you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with all of our Linux VPS plans and you can obtain a VPS running it in less than one hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so you'll be able to choose the one which you need when the software that you wish to run on your hosting server has particular system requirements regarding this. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you can set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you'll have a world wide web interface and all necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a installation is more effective for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We offer Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with just a click on the order page. We provide two releases, in order to make sure that the server matches the requirements of the software that you'd like to install. The full root admission to the server will allow you to set up any other software, since the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You're able to access the server safely from a console, but if you like better to use an online interface, you are free to install any kind of Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will handle plenty of tasks for you, including weekly OS upgrades.
