Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting really popular too. The reason is the fact that the operating system is amazingly light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will find lots of resources on the net. Among the main advantages of this Operating System is that it contains thousands of software packages that can be easily changed according to your needs as well as the requirements of the applications which you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each and every VPS server package that we offer and everything will be set up within 60 minutes, therefore you will be able to start using your VPS without delay. We offer two different editions since some pieces of software have certain requirements in order to operate properly. You can control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a world wide web interface and the software that is necessary for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it without any Control Panel, you'll get just the OS and the Apache web server software, which means that you can set up additional software through Secure Shell. When you choose to add the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your server and will update Ubuntu on a regular basis.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
When the apps that you wish to run require Ubuntu as well as lots of resources, you can choose one of our Linux dedicated service and add this Operating System to your order with a single click. You're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of your OS, based on which release your applications need to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Due to the fact that you will have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on your machine and you will be able to set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not come with a web hosting Control Panel, so you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, however if you want, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to take care of your sites. In case you don't want to lose time taking care of the server, you can take full advantage of the Managed Services package, that features numerous tasks performed by our sysadmins on your behalf. The package includes regular updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
