Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources on the Internet. One of the major benefits of this OS is the fact that it comes with tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely customized according to your needs as well as the requirements of the applications which you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

We provide Ubuntu with our VPS hosting and based on what requirements your web apps have, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with only a few mouse clicks throughout the order process. If you order your server without a hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software which will be installed on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, thus you will be able to use a console to gain access to the website hosting server and to create a software environment that you choose. If you acquire your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you'll be able to control almost everything just as easily as you manage a standard shared account and all the required MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to your server will be restricted. If you do not have a lot of experience, or in case you don't want to waste time on VPS management procedures, you are able to reap the benefits of our Managed Services upgrade, that features once a week Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

You're able to get Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans, because we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. In this way, you are able to pick the more appropriate of these two, based on the type of apps which you want to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control of the software setting. We'll install just the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to add whatever else you will need, even when it is not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You can control everything using a console, however if you would like, you may also set up a web hosting Control Panel, provided that it is compatible with Ubuntu. If you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your OS up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a stable and safe server environment.
