Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting really popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it'll function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty 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 safe and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll find a number of resources on the net. Among the major advantages of this OS is the fact that it contains tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely adjusted in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you would like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With all of our VPS servers, you'll be able to decide on the Ubuntu OS from the order page. We are aware of the fact that some programs have certain requirements in terms of the OS they can be set up on, so you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. You can also choose if your VPS should feature our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll have everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to make everything by using your web browser, yet the root access will be restricted; whereas in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, which means that you'll be able to install anything freely due to the full root access that you will be given, but the server management tasks can be performed using a console. Our sysadmins can watch your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis when you add the additional Managed Services package which we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We supply Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with just a click on the registration page. We supply two editions, to ensure that the hosting server meets the system requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root admission to your server will enable you to set up various other software, as the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server safely through a console, but if you prefer to use an online interface, you can install any kind of Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to focus your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of plenty of tasks for you, among them once a week OS upgrades.
