Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting very popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it'll function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you'll find lots of resources on the web. Among the basic advantages of this OS is the fact that it includes tens of thousands of software packages that can be easily modified in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the apps which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

With any of our Linux VPS hosting services, you can choose the Ubuntu OS from the order page. We recognize the fact that some pieces of software have certain requirements in terms of the OS they are installed on, and you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. You can also choose whether the VPS should come with our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will receive everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you will be able to do everything via your web browser, but the root access is limited; whereas in the second case, you will get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so that you will be able to set up anything freely due to the full root access which you'll be given, but the server management tasks will be performed from a console. Our administrators will watch your VPS and update the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis when you add the additional Managed Services bundle that we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

If the apps that you want to run require Ubuntu as well as a lot of resources, you can opt for one of our Linux dedicated hosting services and add this OS to your order with a single click. You will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of your OS, based on which release your applications need to work properly and to get the most of the server hardware. As you'll have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on your machine and you'll be able to set up anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not feature a website hosting Control Panel, therefore you can manage your content using a Secure Shell console, yet if you would like, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your sites. In case you do not want to lose time managing your web hosting server, you can reap the benefits of the Managed Services package, that features plenty of tasks performed by our system administrators on your behalf. The package comes with regular updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
