Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it can run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a protected and dependable software environment on your server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will find lots of resources on the Internet. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it features a large number of software packages which can be easily customized in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the apps that you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each virtual private server package that we supply and everything is set up within an hour, therefore you can start using your VPS without delay. We supply two separate versions because some pieces of software have certain requirements so as to operate properly. You can control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get a world wide web interface and all the software which is required for your sites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it with no Control Panel, you will receive just the OS and the Apache web server software, so you are able to install additional software through Secure Shell. When you choose to include the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will monitor your server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Ubuntu is among the OS options that you can find on our registration page if you choose to obtain one of our dedicated servers hosting. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, to satisfy the system requirements of the apps that you need to install on the server. You may also choose the software that will operate on your machine, as we will install only the Apache web server software, so all else can be customized software of your liking. You're able to install the latter without any problems from a Secure Shell console, because you will get root-level access and you will have full control of your server. You can set up a web hosting Control Panel too and control some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, comes with OS updates.
