Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting very popular as well. The reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you will discover numerous resources on the Internet. Among the major benefits of this OS is that it has tens of thousands of software packages which can be easily customized according to your needs and the needs of the apps which you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With any of our Linux VPS servers, you can decide on the Ubuntu Operating System from the order page. We're aware of the fact that some programs have specific requirements with regard to the Operating System they're set up on, so you'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. Also, you can select whether your VPS should feature our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will get everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to make everything from your online browser, however the root access will be restricted; whereas in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, so that you'll be able to set up anything freely thanks to the full root access that you'll be given, yet the server management tasks will be done through a console. Our administrators will watch your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu setup weekly when you add the optional Managed Services bundle which we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We supply Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with just a click on the registration page. We supply two editions, to ensure that the server matches the requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root accessibility to your server will enable you to set up any other software, because the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server safely from a console, but in case you would like to use an online interface, you are free to set up any Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you are able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle a variety of tasks for you, including regular Operating System updates.
