Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it'll run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you'll find lots of resources on the web. One of the basic benefits of this OS is that it contains thousands of software packages which can be freely customized according to your needs as well as the requirements of the applications that you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS
Ubuntu is available with our Linux VPS packages and you can get a VPS running it in less than sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so you are able to choose the one which you need if the software that you wish to run on the web hosting server has specific system requirements in this regard. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you can install anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have a world wide web interface and all of the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a installation is more efficient for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
You are able to get Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans, considering that we supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. This way, you can pick the more appropriate of these two, based on the type of applications that you wish to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control over the software environment. We'll set up only the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to add anything else you'll need, even when it is not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You'll be able to manage everything using a console, however if you would like, you may also set up a hosting Control Panel, as long as it is compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order the 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 latest software packages for a well-balanced and secure server environment.
