Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting really popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it can function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a secure and dependable software environment on your server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will discover numerous resources on the Internet. Among the main advantages of this Operating System is that it has a great number of software packages that can be easily changed in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the apps that you'd like 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 code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each and every virtual private server package that we provide and everything will be set up within 1 hour, therefore you'll be able to start using the VPS right away. We offer two separate versions since certain pieces of software have specific requirements in order to operate properly. You will be able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get an online interface and the software that is necessary for your web sites will be pre-installed; while if you order it with no Control Panel, you will receive only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you will be able to install additional software using Secure Shell. If you decide to add our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep close track of your server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If the applications that you want to run require Ubuntu as well as lots of resources, you can opt for our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and add this Operating System to your order with a single click. You will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of the Operating System, based on which edition your apps need in order to work properly and to get the most of the server hardware. Since you'll have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on the machine and you can install anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't include a web hosting Control Panel, which means that you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, yet if you want, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your sites. In case you do not want to lose time controlling your hosting server, you can take full advantage of our Managed Services package, that features a number of tasks done by our sysadmins on your behalf. The upgrade includes routine updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
