Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The main reason is that the OS is extremely light and it'll function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will find plenty of resources on the net. Among the major benefits of this OS is the fact that it includes a large number of software packages which can be freely modified according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each and every VPS server package that we provide and everything will be set up within 1 hour, which means that you can start using the VPS without delay. We offer two different editions because certain programs have particular requirements to operate properly. You're able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll receive an online interface and the software that is required for your sites will be pre-installed; while if you order it without any Control Panel, you'll receive only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you are able to install other software using Secure Shell. When you decide to include the Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will monitor your server and will update Ubuntu regularly.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
If the apps that you wish to run require Ubuntu and lots of system resources, you should select our dedicated servers and add this OS to your order with just a single click. You can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of your Operating System, based on which edition your applications need to work properly and to get the most of the server hardware. Since you will have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on your machine and you can set up anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not come with a website hosting Control Panel, and you can manage your content using a Secure Shell console, but if you'd like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to take care of your Internet sites. In case you do not want to lose time controlling the hosting server, you can take advantage of our Managed Services package, that features numerous tasks performed by our sysadmins on your behalf. The package includes routine updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
