Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll find lots of resources online. One of the main benefits of this OS is the fact that it includes a large number of software packages that can be easily changed in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the applications which you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We offer Ubuntu with our Linux VPS hosting service and based on what requirements your web applications have, you can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with just a few clicks during the registration process. When you obtain your server without a web hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be set up along with Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to set up a software environment of your liking. If you obtain your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a world wide web interface with which you are able to manage almost everything as quickly as you manage an ordinary shared account and all essential MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, however the root access to your server is restricted. In case you don't have a lot experience, or if you do not like to waste time on VPS control procedures, you'll be able to take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, that features regular Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

You'll be able to acquire Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages, because we supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this OS. This way, you are able to select the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of apps that you'd like to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You will have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control of the software environment. We will install just the Apache web server software, therefore you're able to add whatever else you need, even if it's not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You'll be able to control everything using a console, however if you want, you can also install a hosting Control Panel, provided that it's compatible with Ubuntu. If you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your OS up-to-date weekly and will make sure that you have the latest software packages for a well-balanced and secure server environment.
