Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting really popular as well. The reason is that the OS is very light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a safe and stable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you'll discover lots of resources on the web. Among the main benefits of this Operating System is that it has numerous software packages which can be freely modified according to your needs and / or the needs of the applications that you wish 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 program code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each and every VPS server plan that we provide and everything is set up within one hour, so you'll be able to start using the VPS right away. We supply two separate versions since some programs have certain requirements in order to function efficiently. You are able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get a world wide web interface and the software that is required for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it with no Control Panel, you'll get just the OS and the Apache web server software, which means that you can install other software through Secure Shell. If you choose to include the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will monitor your server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

If the applications that you need to run require Ubuntu and a lot of system resources, you should opt for our Linux dedicated service and add this OS to your order with a click. You can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS, according to which edition your applications need to work properly and to get the most of the server hardware. Due to the fact that you'll have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on the machine and you'll be able to install anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't feature a website hosting Control Panel, and you can manage your content using a Secure Shell console, but if you would like, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to control your Internet sites. In case you don't want to lose time supervising the server, you can take full advantage of our Managed Services package, that features plenty of tasks done by our admins on your behalf. The upgrade features regular updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
