Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting pretty popular too. The reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it will function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you will find lots of resources on the net. One of the basic benefits of this Operating System is that it has tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely changed according to your needs and the needs of the applications that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We supply Ubuntu with all our VPS servers and depending on what system requirements your web applications have, you will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with only a few mouse clicks during the order process. When you obtain your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be set up on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, which means that you will be able to use a console in order to access the website hosting server and to create a software environment that you choose. If you get your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you'll be able to control almost everything as quickly as you control a standard shared account and all the vital MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to your server is restricted. When you don't have much experience, or if you don't want to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you can take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which includes regular Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

You'll be able to get Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages, considering that we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this OS. This way, you are able to choose the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of apps that you'd like to install and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control of the software setting. We will install only the Apache web server software, therefore you are able to add everything else you need, even when it's not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You'll be able to manage everything from a console, but if you want, you may also install a web hosting Control Panel, on condition that it's compatible with Ubuntu. When you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your Operating System up-to-date every week and will ensure that you have the newest software packages for a stable and risk-free server environment.
