Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it will function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll find plenty of resources on the web. Among the main advantages of this OS is the fact that it comes with a great number of software packages which can be freely adjusted in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the apps which you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with each virtual private server plan that we offer and everything will be set up within 1 hour, therefore you'll be able to start using your VPS right away. We offer two different editions due to the fact that some programs have certain requirements to work efficiently. You'll be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface and the software that's necessary for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it without any Control Panel, you'll receive just the OS and the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to install additional software employing Secure Shell. If you decide to add the Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our admins will keep track of your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu regularly.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

We supply Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the order page. We offer two versions, so as to ensure that the hosting server will meet the requirements of the software that you'd like to set up. The full root accessibility to the server will help you install any other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You are able to access the server safely through a console, but if you prefer to use an online interface, you can set up any kind of Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you would like to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you're able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will handle numerous tasks for you, among them weekly OS upgrades.
