Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting really popular too. The reason is that the operating system is really light and it will run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you will find lots of resources online. Among the key benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it has a large number of software packages which can be freely adjusted according to your needs and the needs of the applications that you intend to run, not to mention that you will not 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 can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

Ubuntu is available with all our VPS hosting and you can purchase a VPS running it in less than sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, which means that you will be able to select the one which you need if the software that you would like to run on your server has specific system requirements regarding this. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you can install anything using 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 required web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but such a installation is more efficient for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so throughout the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

We supply Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the order page. We supply two releases, so as to make sure that the server will match the requirements of the software that you want to install. The full root access to the server will enable you to install any other software, as the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You're able to access the server safely from a console, but in case you like better to use a web interface, you're free to set up any Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you will be able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of numerous tasks for you, including weekly Operating System updates.
