Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is really light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. 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 should have a secure and dependable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will discover lots of resources on the Internet. Among the main advantages of this OS is the fact that it includes thousands of software packages which can be easily changed according to 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 at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each and every VPS server
package that we offer and everything will be set up within 1 hour, therefore you'll be able to start using the VPS right away. We provide two different editions because certain programs have particular requirements in order to work efficiently. You can manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a world wide web interface and the software which is necessary for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it with no Control Panel, you will receive only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so that you'll be able to install additional software employing Secure Shell. If you choose to include the Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our admins will monitor your server and will update Ubuntu on a regular basis.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
If the applications that you would like to run require Ubuntu as well as plenty of resources, you can opt for our dedicated web hosting plans
and add this OS to your order with a click. You will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of your Operating System, depending on which edition your apps need to work properly and to get the most of the server hardware. As you'll have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on your machine and you will be able to set up anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not come with a web hosting Control Panel, which means that you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, yet if you want, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to command your websites. If you do not want to lose time supervising your web hosting server, you can employ the Managed Services package, which includes numerous tasks done by our admins on your behalf. The upgrade features regular updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
