Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting quite popular as well. The reason is that the OS is extremely light and it'll function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 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 biggest user communities globally, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll find plenty of resources online. One of the basic benefits of this OS is the fact that it features thousands of software packages which can be easily adjusted according to your needs and the requirements of the applications that you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

Ubuntu is available with all our Linux VPS and you can acquire a VPS running it in just 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so that you'll be able to select the one that you need when the software that you wish to run on the web hosting server has particular system requirements regarding this. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you'll be able to set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have a world wide web interface and all necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of installation is more effective for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this during the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

Ubuntu is among the OS options which you can find on our registration page when you choose to acquire one of our Linux dedicated hosting. We will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, so as to meet the system requirements of the apps that you would like to install on the server. You can also choose the software which will operate on your machine, as we will install only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be tailor-made software of your liking. You can set up the latter without any problems by using a Secure Shell console, because you will receive root-level access and you'll get full control over your server. You are free to set up a hosting Control Panel as well and manage some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features Operating System upgrades.
