Ubuntu is a widespread 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 extremely light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you will discover numerous resources on the Internet. Among the main benefits of this Operating System is that it features a great number of software packages which can be easily changed in accordance with 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 license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with each and every virtual private server plan that we supply and everything is set up within 60 minutes, which means that you will be able to start using the VPS without delay. We offer two separate versions due to the fact that some programs have particular requirements to operate efficiently. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface and all the software that's required for your sites will be pre-installed; whereas 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 set up other software through Secure Shell. If 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 routinely.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Ubuntu is among the Operating System options which you will find on our order page if you choose to obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting. We'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, in order to satisfy the system requirements of the apps which you intend to set up on the server. You can also select the software which will operate on your machine, as we will set up only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom-made software of your liking. You are able to install the latter without problems through a Secure Shell console, since you will get root-level access and you will get full control of the hosting server. You are free to set up a website hosting Control Panel as well and control some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, contains OS upgrades.
