Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting really popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will discover numerous resources on the web. One of the basic advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it features a great number of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We offer Ubuntu with our VPS servers and based on what requirements your web apps have, you are able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with only a couple of clicks during the order process. If you order your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software which will be set up on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to use a console in order to access the server and to install a software environment of your liking. If you obtain your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you are able to manage almost everything just as easily as you manage a standard shared account and all of the vital MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to the server will be limited. If you don't have a lot of experience, or if you do not like to waste time on VPS management procedures, you can take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, that features every week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is among the Operating System options which you can find on our order page when you decide to obtain one of our Linux dedicated service. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, in order to meet the system requirements of the applications that you wish to set up on the server. You can also select the software that will run on your machine, as we will set up only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be tailor-made software that you choose. You are able to set up the latter without problems from a Secure Shell console, as you will receive root-level access and you will have full control over the server. You can install a hosting Control Panel too and manage some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, comes with Operating System upgrades.
