Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting very popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it can function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll discover a number of resources on the Internet. One of the basic advantages of this OS is that it includes a large number of software packages which can be easily customized according to your needs as well as the requirements of the apps that you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS
With all of our VPS packages, you will be able to select the Ubuntu Operating System on the order page. We are aware of the fact that some pieces of software have specific requirements in terms of the OS they are installed on, and you're able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. You can also choose whether the VPS should come with the Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll get everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you'll be able to do everything via your online browser, but the root access will be restricted; while in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, which means that you're able to set up anything freely because of the full root access which you will be given, however the server management tasks can be performed using a console. Our sysadmins will keep track of your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis when you add the optional Managed Services package which we offer.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
You're able to acquire Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages, due to the fact that we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. This way, you will be able to choose the more appropriate of them, depending on the type of applications that you would like to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control over the software setting. We will set up only the Apache web server software, so you can add whatever else you may need, even when it's not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You are able to manage everything from a console, but if you want, you may also install a website hosting Control Panel, provided that it's compatible with Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep 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 reliable and safe server environment.
