Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting very popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it will run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will discover lots of resources on the Internet. One of the major benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it has a great number of software packages which can be freely modified according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications that you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any 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 Servers

We provide Ubuntu with all our VPS web hosting plans and depending on what system requirements your web apps have, you are able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with just a few clicks throughout the order process. When you order your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the sole software that will be set up on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you are able to use a console to gain access to the server and to install a software environment of your choice. When you obtain your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a world wide web interface with which you'll be able to manage almost everything just as easily as you manage an ordinary shared account and all required MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to your server is limited. If you don't have a lot experience, or if you do not like to waste time on VPS management procedures, you can reap the benefits of the Managed Services upgrade, which features once a week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is among the Operating System options which you'll find on our order page when you decide to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, so as to match the system requirements of the applications which you want to set up on the server. You can also select the software that will run on your machine, due to the fact that we will install only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom-made software of your liking. You will be able to set up the latter without problems employing a Secure Shell console, since you will have root-level access and you'll get full control of the server. You can set up a web hosting Control Panel as well and control some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, comes with OS updates.
