Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting pretty popular too. The reason is that the OS is really light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you'll find plenty of resources online. One of the basic advantages of this OS is the fact that it contains numerous software packages which can be freely changed according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications that you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with each and every VPS server plan that we supply and everything will be set up within 1 hour, which means that you're able to start using the VPS without delay. We provide two separate versions due to the fact that certain programs have specific requirements in order to function effectively. You'll be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a world wide web interface and all of the software that's required for your sites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it with no Control Panel, you will get only the OS and the Apache web server software, so that you'll be able to set up other software through Secure Shell. When you choose to add our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will monitor your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

If the apps that you would like to run require Ubuntu and a lot of resources, you can select one of our dedicated servers and add this Operating System to your order with a click. You're able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the Operating System, depending on which edition your applications need in order to work properly and to get the most of the server hardware. As you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on your machine and you will be able to install anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not come with a website hosting Control Panel, which means that you can manage your content through a Secure Shell console, however if you want, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to control your web sites. If you do not want to lose time supervising the hosting server, you can take advantage of the Managed Services package, that includes a lot of tasks done by our sysadmins on your behalf. The package features regular updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
