Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting really popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will find numerous resources online. Among the basic advantages of this Operating System is that it features numerous software packages that can be easily modified according to your needs and the requirements of the apps that you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you will be 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 supply and everything will be set up within 1 hour, which means that you'll be able to start using the VPS right away. We offer two different editions since certain programs have particular requirements so as to function effectively. You're able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface and all of the software that is needed for your sites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it with no Control Panel, you'll receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so that you can set up additional software using Secure Shell. When you decide to add our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep close track of your server and will update Ubuntu routinely.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If the applications that you wish to run require Ubuntu as well as a lot of system resources, you should select our dedicated servers hosting packages and add this OS to your order with a single click. You can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS, depending on which release your apps need in order to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Since you'll have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on your machine and you can set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't contain a web hosting Control Panel, therefore you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, however if you'd like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your web sites. When you do not want to lose time supervising your server, you can employ our Managed Services package, that features a number of tasks performed by our sysadmins on your behalf. The package comes with routine updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
