Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting very popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is very light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you'll find numerous resources online. One of the major advantages of this Operating System is that it contains a great number of software packages which can be freely modified according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps that you need 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, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you're 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 provide and everything is set up within 1 hour, therefore you can start using your VPS without delay. We offer two different versions because some pieces of software have particular requirements to function properly. You will be able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get an online interface and the software that is needed for your web sites will be pre-installed; while in case you order it without any Control Panel, you'll get just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so that you are able to set up other software through Secure Shell. When you choose to include the 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 Web Hosting

You'll be able to get Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages, due to the fact that we provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. This way, you'll be able to pick the more appropriate of them, depending on the type of applications that you would like to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control of the software environment. We will install just the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to add whatever else you may need, even if it's not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You are able to manage everything using a console, but if you want, you can also install a website hosting Control Panel, provided that it supports Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your Operating System up-to-date on a weekly basis and will make sure that you have the newest software packages for a well-balanced and risk-free server environment.
