Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is amazingly light and it can run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you will have a protected and stable software environment on your hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll find numerous resources online. Among the main benefits of this Operating System is that it features a large number of software packages that can be easily changed in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you are able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each and every virtual private server plan that we provide and everything will be set up within one hour, therefore you will be able to start using your VPS without delay. We supply two different editions since certain programs have particular requirements to work effectively. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a world wide web interface and the software that's required for your web sites will be pre-installed; while when you order it with no Control Panel, you will get only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so that you are able to install additional software employing Secure Shell. When you choose to include our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
Ubuntu is among the OS options that you'll find on our registration page in case you choose to acquire one of our dedicated servers hosting packages. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, to satisfy the system requirements of the applications which you wish to set up on the server. You may also select the software that will run on your machine, because we will set up only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be tailor-made software of your choice. You'll be able to install the latter without any problems using a Secure Shell console, as you'll receive root-level access and you'll get full control over the server. You are free to set up a website hosting Control Panel too and control some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features OS upgrades.
