Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting very popular as well. The reason is that the OS is very light and it'll run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will find plenty of resources on the Internet. One of the main advantages of this OS is the fact that it features tens of thousands of software packages that can be easily customized in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the apps which you want 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 code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

We supply Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS hosting packages and based on what requirements your web applications have, you're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with just a couple of mouse clicks throughout the registration process. If you order your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software which will be set up in addition to Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to use a console to access the website hosting server and to create a software environment of your choice. If you order your server with our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you will be able to manage almost everything just as easily as you control a regular shared account and all essential MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, but the root access to the server will be restricted. If you do not have a lot experience, or in case you do not wish to waste time on VPS management procedures, you will be able to take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, which includes every week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

You'll be able to get Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages, as we supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. In this way, you will be able to select the more appropriate of them, based on the type of applications that you wish to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control over the software setting. We'll set up only the Apache web server software, so you can add whatever else you will need, even if it is not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You are able to control everything from a console, but if you want, you can also set up a hosting Control Panel, as long as it's 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 most up-to-date software packages for a well-balanced and protected server environment.
