Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it will run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you will find plenty of resources on the web. One of the main benefits of this OS is the fact that it contains thousands of software packages that can be freely adjusted according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps that you would 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 code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each and every virtual private server package that we offer and everything is set up within an hour, which means that you're able to start using the VPS without delay. We offer two separate editions because some programs have certain requirements to function properly. You are able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface and all of the software that is needed for your sites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it with no Control Panel, you will receive just the OS and the Apache web server software, so that you're able to install additional software through Secure Shell. When you decide to include the Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep an eye on your hosting server and will update Ubuntu on a regular basis.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If the applications that you need to run require Ubuntu as well as a lot of resources, you should opt for our Linux dedicated servers hosting and add this Operating System to your order with just a single click. You're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of the OS, according to which edition your apps need in order to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. As you will have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on your machine and you'll be able to install anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not feature a web hosting Control Panel, so you can manage your content through a Secure Shell console, but if you'd like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to take care of your web sites. If you don't want to lose time managing the server, you can take full advantage of our Managed Services package, that includes countless tasks done by our system administrators on your behalf. The package features routine updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
