Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting really popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will discover plenty of resources on the Internet. One of the key benefits of this OS is the fact that it has numerous software packages that can be freely adjusted according to your needs as well as the requirements of the apps which you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS servers and you can acquire a VPS running it in less than 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so that you can choose the one that you need if the software that you want to run on the website hosting server has particular system requirements in this regard. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you will be able to set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have a web interface and all of the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but such a setup is more efficient for users with less experience. We will also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We offer Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with just a click on the order page. We supply two editions, so as to guarantee that the server will meet the system requirements of the software that you would like to install. The full root access to your server will allow you to set up various other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server safely from a console, but if you prefer to use an online interface, you are free to install any Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you need to focus your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you'll be able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle a number of tasks for you, among them regular OS upgrades.
