Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting really popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is extremely light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware without 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 a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will discover plenty of resources online. Among the main advantages of this OS is the fact that it contains tens of thousands of software packages which can be easily changed according to your needs and the requirements of the applications which you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We offer Ubuntu with all of our VPS servers and based on what requirements your web apps have, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with just a couple of mouse clicks throughout the registration process. When you get your server without a hosting Control Panel, the only software that will be set up in addition to Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you are able to use a console in order to access the server and to build a software environment of your choice. If you order your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have an online interface with which you are able to control almost everything as quickly as you control a standard shared account and all important MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to your server will be limited. When you don't have a lot of experience, or if you don't plan to waste time on VPS management procedures, you will be able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

When the applications that you want to run require Ubuntu and a lot of resources, you can opt for one of our dedicated servers 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 your Operating System, depending on which release your apps need in order to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Since you will have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on your machine and you will be able to install anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not contain a web hosting Control Panel, therefore you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, yet if you'd like, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your Internet sites. In case you do not want to lose time supervising your hosting server, you can take advantage of our Managed Services package, which includes countless tasks done by our sysadmins on your behalf. The package includes regular updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
