Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it'll run on almost any hardware with no 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 protected and stable software environment on your hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will discover lots of resources on the net. One of the basic advantages of this Operating System is that it contains a great number of software packages which can be freely adjusted according to your needs as well as the requirements of the applications that you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with all our VPS hosting plans and you can purchase a VPS running it in just 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so that you're able to choose the one which you need if the software that you would like to run on your web hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you will be able to install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have a world wide web interface and all of the required web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of installation is more effective for users with less experience. We can 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 via your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

When the apps that you want to run require Ubuntu as well as a lot of resources, you can choose our dedicated web hosting plans and add this Operating System to your order with a click. You will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of the OS, depending on which release your apps need in order to work properly and to get the most of the server hardware. As you will have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on your machine and you will be able to set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't come with a hosting Control Panel, therefore you can manage your content through a Secure Shell console, yet if you would like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to take care of your Internet sites. In case you don't want to lose time managing your server, you can take advantage of the Managed Services package, that features countless tasks performed by our sysadmins on your behalf. The upgrade comes with routine updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
