Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll find numerous resources on the net. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is that it comes with thousands of software packages that can be easily customized in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the applications which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with all our VPS servers and you can purchase a VPS running it in less than sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so you'll be able to select the one which you need if the software that you want to run on the hosting server has specific system requirements in this regard. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you can install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have a world wide web interface and all of the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of setup is more effective for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.

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 servers and add this Operating System to your order with a click. You will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of your Operating System, depending on which release your apps need to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Due to the fact that you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on the machine and you'll be able to install anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not come with a web hosting Control Panel, therefore you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, but if you want, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your websites. In case you do not want to lose time taking care of your web hosting server, you can take advantage of the Managed Services package, that features numerous tasks performed by our admins on your behalf. The package comes with routine updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
