Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting quite popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover plenty of resources on the web. One of the main advantages of this OS is the fact that it comes with a large number of software packages that can be easily adjusted according to your needs and / or the requirements of the applications which you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you will be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each and every virtual private server plan that we offer and everything is set up within 1 hour, which means that you will be able to start using the VPS without delay. We supply two separate versions because some pieces of software have certain requirements to work efficiently. You'll be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a world wide web interface and all the software which is necessary for your websites will be pre-installed; while in case you order it without any Control Panel, you'll receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to set up other software employing Secure Shell. If you decide to include our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the registration process or at any later time, our admins will keep track of your hosting server and will update Ubuntu regularly.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can acquire Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages, as we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this OS. In this way, you'll be able to pick the more appropriate of them, based on the type of apps which you wish to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control over the software setting. We'll set up only the Apache web server software, therefore you're able to add anything else you will need, even if it's not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You'll be able to control everything from a console, but if you want, you can also set up a hosting Control Panel, provided that it supports Ubuntu. In case you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your OS up-to-date on a weekly basis and will make sure that you have the latest software packages for a stable and protected server environment.
