Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting really popular as well. The main reason is that the operating system 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 very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll find plenty of resources on the Internet. One of the major advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it includes a large number of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and the needs of the apps which you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With all of our Linux VPS hosting service, you'll be able to select the Ubuntu OS on the order page. We are aware of the fact that some programs have particular requirements in terms of the OS they're installed on, so you are able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. In addition, you can select whether your VPS should come with the Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll have everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you are able to make everything from your Internet browser, yet the root access will be limited; whereas in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so that you can set up anything freely thanks to the full root access which you will be given, but the server management tasks will be done through a console. Our system administrators can watch your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation weekly when you add the optional Managed Services package that we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We supply Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the order page. We offer two versions, so as to guarantee that the hosting server will meet the system requirements of the software that you need to set up. The full root access to your server will help you set up any other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You are able to access the server securely through a console, yet in case you would like to use an online interface, you're free to install any Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you want to focus your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you will be able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of a number of tasks for you, among them once a week OS upgrades.
