Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting very popular as well. The main reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll find plenty of resources online. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it contains a great number of software packages that can be freely changed according to your needs and the needs of the applications that you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees 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

With all of our Linux VPS servers, you will be able to pick the Ubuntu OS from the order page. We recognize the fact that some pieces of software have particular requirements in terms of the OS they're installed on, which means that you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. You can also select if the VPS should feature the Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will receive everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to make everything via your Internet browser, however the root access will be restricted; while in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, which means that you can set up anything freely thanks to the full root access that you will be given, but the server management tasks are performed from a console. Our system administrators can monitor your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu installation weekly if you add the additional Managed Services bundle which we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you'll find on our registration page when you want to get one of our dedicated servers. We will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, in order to satisfy the system requirements of the applications which you would like to install on the server. You may also choose the software that will run on your machine, since we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom-made software that you choose. You'll be able to set up the latter without any problems using a Secure Shell console, since you will have root-level access and you'll have full control over your hosting server. You are free to install a hosting Control Panel too and manage some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, contains OS upgrades.
