Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting very popular as well. The main reason is that the operating system is very light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources on the web. One of the major advantages of this Operating System is that it comes with tens of thousands of software packages which can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with our VPS web hosting plans and you can obtain a VPS running it in just an hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so that you're able to select the one that you need when the software that you wish to run on the web hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you can install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have a world wide web interface and all required web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a setup is more effective for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options that you will find on our registration page when you want to acquire one of our dedicated servers. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, so as to satisfy the system requirements of the applications which you wish to set up on the server. You can also choose the software that will operate on your machine, because we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom software that you choose. You're able to set up the latter without problems through a Secure Shell console, because you'll receive root-level access and you'll get full control of the hosting server. You can install a website hosting Control Panel too and control some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features Operating System updates.
