Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it'll run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will find lots of resources online. Among the key benefits of this Operating System is that it includes numerous software packages which can be easily modified according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you would like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We supply Ubuntu with our VPS plans and depending on what requirements your web apps have, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with just a couple of clicks during the registration process. If you obtain your server devoid of hosting Control Panel, the only software which will be set up on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to use a console to access the hosting server and to install a software environment of your liking. When you obtain your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a world wide web interface with which you are able to control almost everything as easily as you manage a standard shared account and all of the required MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to the server will be limited. In case you don't have a lot experience, or in case you don't like to waste time on VPS management procedures, you are able to take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, which features weekly Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

If the apps that you would like to run require Ubuntu and plenty of resources, you should opt for our dedicated web hosting plans and add this Operating System to your order with a click. You will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of your Operating System, according to which release your applications need to work properly and to get the most of the server hardware. As you will have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on the machine and you will be able to install anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not contain a web hosting Control Panel, which means that you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, however if you'd like, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to take care of your Internet sites. In case you don't want to lose time controlling your hosting server, you can employ the Managed Services package, that includes lots of tasks done by our sysadmins on your behalf. The package features routine updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
