Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting really popular too. The reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely 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 risk-free and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll find lots of resources on the Internet. Among the major advantages of this Operating System is that it includes a great number of software packages that can be easily modified according to your needs as well as the requirements of the apps which you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with each and every virtual private server plan that we offer and everything is set up within 60 minutes, so you are able to start using the VPS without delay. We provide two separate editions since some pieces of software have particular requirements in order to function efficiently. You're able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface and all the software which is necessary for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it devoid of Control Panel, you will get only the OS and the Apache web server software, which means that you can install other software employing Secure Shell. If you decide to add the Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will monitor your hosting server and will update Ubuntu on a regular basis.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

You'll be able to acquire Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages, due to the fact that we provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. In this way, you will be able to choose the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of apps which you wish to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control over the software setting. We will set up only the Apache web server software, therefore you're able to add whatever else you'll need, even if it's not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You can manage everything using a console, but if you want, you can also install a web hosting Control Panel, on condition that it supports Ubuntu. When you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your Operating System up-to-date every week and will ensure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a stable and protected server environment.
