Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting pretty popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is amazingly light and it'll run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll find numerous resources on the Internet. One of the key benefits of this OS is the fact that it has thousands of software packages which can be freely adjusted in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the apps that you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with each VPS server
plan that we provide and everything will be set up within 1 hour, so you'll be able to start using your VPS without delay. We supply two different editions because some programs have specific requirements to operate effectively. You'll be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a world wide web interface and all of the software that is necessary for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it devoid of Control Panel, you will get only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to install other software using Secure Shell. If you choose to include the Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your hosting server and will update Ubuntu on a regular basis.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options that you will find on our registration page in case you decide to obtain one of our dedicated servers
. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, in order to satisfy the system requirements of the apps which you want to set up on the server. You may also choose the software that will operate on your machine, since we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom-made software of your liking. You're able to install the latter without problems by using a Secure Shell console, because you will get root-level access and you'll have full control over your server. You can install a hosting Control Panel as well and manage some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, comes with OS updates.
