Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a secure and dependable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover lots of resources on the web. Among the major benefits of this OS is the fact that it has tens of thousands of software packages that can be easily changed according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS plans and you can buy a VPS running it in less than 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, which means that you will be able to choose the one which you need if the software that you would like to run on your website hosting server has particular system requirements regarding this. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you can install anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have a web interface and all of the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, 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 suitable 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 this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We supply Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with just a click on the order page. We provide two versions, to ensure that the hosting server will match the system requirements of the software that you'd like to install. The full root access to your server allows you to set up any other software, since the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You can access the server securely from a console, but in case you would like to use a world wide web interface, you're free to set up any kind of Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you want to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you can add the Managed Services upgrade and we will handle numerous tasks for you, which includes regular Operating System updates.
