Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting pretty popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you should have a secure and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover lots of resources on the web. One of the key advantages of this OS is that it contains a large number of software packages which can be easily customized according to your needs as well as the needs of the apps which you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

We supply Ubuntu with our Linux VPS web hosting and depending on what requirements your web applications have, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with just a couple of clicks during the registration process. When you get your server with no web hosting Control Panel, the sole software that will be set up along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to use a console to gain access to the website hosting server and to set up a software environment that you choose. When you order your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you will be able to manage almost everything as easily as you control a regular shared account and all of the vital MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, however the root access to the server will be limited. If you do not have a lot of experience, or in case you don't wish to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you can take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which includes regular Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

We provide Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the order page. We supply two editions, to guarantee that the server will meet the system requirements of the software that you wish to set up. The full root admission to the server will help you set up any other software, since the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server safely from a console, however in case you prefer to use a world wide web interface, you're free to install any kind of Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you want to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will handle numerous tasks for you, among them weekly Operating System upgrades.
