Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting really popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will discover numerous resources on the web. Among the major advantages of this Operating System is that it includes tens of thousands of software packages that can be freely customized in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications that you would like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with each VPS server
plan that we offer and everything will be set up within 1 hour, so you are able to start using your VPS right away. We offer two different versions due to the fact that some programs have specific requirements so as to function effectively. You will be able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get a world wide web interface and the software that is required for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it with no Control Panel, you will receive just the OS and the Apache web server software, so that you're able to set up additional software through Secure Shell. When you choose to include our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep an eye on your server and will update Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is among the Operating System options which you'll find on our order page if you want to acquire one of our dedicated web hosting plans
. We will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, so as to meet the system requirements of the applications which you intend to set up on the server. You can also select the software which will operate on your machine, because we will install only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom-made software of your choice. You can install the latter without problems using a Secure Shell console, as you'll receive root-level access and you will get full control of your server. You can install a hosting Control Panel too and control some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, comes with Operating System upgrades.
