Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting quite popular too. The reason is that the operating system is very light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will find numerous resources on the net. Among the key benefits of this OS is that it comes with numerous software packages that can be freely modified according to your needs as well as the requirements of the apps 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 code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

We offer Ubuntu with all of our VPS hosting and depending on what system requirements your web apps have, you'll be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with just a couple of mouse clicks during the registration process. When you get your server with no hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be installed on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, thus you're able to use a console to gain access to the website hosting server and to install a software environment of your choice. When you acquire your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have an online interface with which you'll be able to control almost everything as easily as you manage a regular shared account and all required MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to the server will be limited. When you don't have a lot of experience, or in case you do not wish to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you can take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that features once a week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

If the applications that you wish to run require Ubuntu as well as a lot of resources, you should select one of our Linux dedicated hosting services and add this OS to your order with just a single click. You'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of your OS, depending on which release your applications need in order to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Since you'll have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on your machine and you can set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not contain a website hosting Control Panel, so you can manage your content through a Secure Shell console, however if you'd like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to command your web sites. If you don't want to lose time taking care of the server, you can employ the Managed Services package, that includes numerous tasks performed by our system administrators on your behalf. The upgrade includes regular updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
