Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting pretty popular too. The reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of 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 hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any issue or have any question, you'll find plenty of resources on the web. One of the main benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it features thousands of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the apps that you would like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at 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

We provide Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS servers and depending on what requirements your web applications have, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with just a couple of clicks during the registration process. When you obtain your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the sole software that will be installed on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, thus you can use a console to access the website hosting server and to build a software environment of your choice. If you order your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you can manage almost everything as quickly as you manage a standard shared account and all of the necessary MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, yet the root access to the server will be limited. When you don't have a lot of experience, or if you do not wish to waste time on VPS control procedures, you are able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

If the applications that you wish to run require Ubuntu as well as a lot of system resources, you can select our dedicated web hosting plans and add this Operating System to your order with a click. You're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of the Operating System, according to which edition your apps need in order to function properly and to get the most of the server hardware. Since you will have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on the machine and you'll be able to set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't include a website hosting Control Panel, and you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, however if you would like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to control your web sites. When you don't want to lose time maintaining your server, you can reap the benefits of the Managed Services package, that includes a lot of tasks done by our sysadmins on your behalf. The package features regular updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
