Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting really popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it will run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and stable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, 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 basic advantages of this Operating System is that it features numerous software packages which can be easily modified according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
Ubuntu is available with all of our Linux VPS hosting and you can get a VPS running it in less than sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so that you can choose the one which you need when the software that you wish to run on the hosting server has particular system requirements in this regard. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you will be able to set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have a web interface and all required web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a setup is more suitable for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
Ubuntu is among the OS options that you will find on our order page if you want to acquire one of our Linux dedicated web hosting. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, in order to match the system requirements of the applications which you'd like to set up on the server. You can also select the software which will operate on your machine, since we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be custom-made software of your liking. You're able to install the latter without problems through a Secure Shell console, because you will get root-level access and you will get full control of the server. You can install a web hosting Control Panel as well and control some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features Operating System updates.
