Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting quite popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it can run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll find plenty of resources on the web. One of the key advantages of this Operating System is that it contains a large number of software packages that can be freely changed according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you can get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each and every VPS server package that we offer and everything is set up within 1 hour, so you will be able to start using your VPS right away. We provide two separate editions since some pieces of software have specific requirements in order to function effectively. You are able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get a world wide web interface and all the software that's necessary for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it with no Control Panel, you'll receive just the OS and the Apache web server software, so you can set up other software using Secure Shell. If you decide to add our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep an eye on your hosting server and will update Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
When the applications that you need to run require Ubuntu as well as plenty of resources, you can choose our dedicated web hosting plans and add this Operating System to your order with a single click. You will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of your OS, based on which edition your applications need in order to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Since you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on your machine and you'll be able to set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not come with a website hosting Control Panel, so you can manage your content using a Secure Shell console, yet if you'd like, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to command your sites. When you don't want to lose time taking care of your hosting server, you can use our Managed Services package, that includes lots of tasks done by our admins on your behalf. The package comes with routine updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
