Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is very light and it'll run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you will find a number of resources online. Among the main benefits of this OS is that it contains tens of thousands of software packages that can be freely adjusted according to your needs and / or the needs of the applications which you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each VPS server package that we offer and everything will be set up within an hour, so you can start using the VPS right away. We provide two different editions since certain pieces of software have specific requirements in order to work efficiently. You are able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface and all the software that's necessary for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; while when you order it without any Control Panel, you will get just the OS and the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to set up other software employing Secure Shell. When you decide to add the Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our admins will keep track of your server and will update Ubuntu regularly.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

If the apps that you need to run require Ubuntu as well as plenty of system resources, you can choose one of our dedicated web hosting plans and add this OS to your order with just a single click. You can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of your OS, based on which release your applications need in order to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. As you'll have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on your machine and you'll be able to install anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not feature a website hosting Control Panel, therefore you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, however if you would like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to command your Internet sites. In case you don't want to lose time maintaining the web hosting server, you can take advantage of the Managed Services package, which includes a lot of tasks done by our admins on your behalf. The package comes with regular updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
