Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is that the OS is extremely 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 Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover plenty of resources on the web. One of the key benefits of this Operating System is that it comes with a large number of software packages that can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs and the needs of the apps which you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With any of our VPS servers, you are able to decide on the Ubuntu OS on the order page. We recognize the fact that some pieces of software have particular requirements with regard to the Operating System they're set up on, so you can select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. You can also select if the VPS should come with our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll receive everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you will be able to do everything through your Internet browser, yet the root access will be limited; while in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, so that you can set up anything freely due to the full root access that you will be given, however the server management tasks can be performed using a console. Our system administrators can watch your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis if you add the optional Managed Services package which we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you'll find on our order page if you want to acquire one of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans. We'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, so as to satisfy the system requirements of the applications which you intend to install on the server. You may also select the software which will operate on your machine, due to the fact that we will set up only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be tailor-made software of your choice. You're able to install the latter without any problems through a Secure Shell console, as you will receive root-level access and you'll get full control over your server. You are free to set up a hosting Control Panel as well and control some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, includes OS updates.
