Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting quite popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it can run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll find lots of resources online. One of the basic advantages of this Operating System is that it contains thousands of software packages that can be freely adjusted in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the applications that you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We supply Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS servers and based on what requirements your web apps have, you'll be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with just a few mouse clicks throughout the registration process. When you obtain your server with no hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software which will be set up on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you are able to use a console to access the website hosting server and to create a software environment that you choose. If you order your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you will be able to control almost everything as quickly as you manage a regular shared account and all essential MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, yet the root access to the server will be limited. In case you don't have a lot of experience, or if you don't wish to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you are able to reap the benefits of our Managed Services upgrade, that features every week Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

You're able to obtain Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages, because we offer 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this Operating System. In this way, you will be able to choose the more appropriate of them, based on the type of apps that you need to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You will have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control over the software environment. We'll install only the Apache web server software, therefore you are able to add everything else you will need, even when it's not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You'll be able to control everything from a console, but if you want, you can also set up a website hosting Control Panel, provided that it supports Ubuntu. In case you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your OS up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a well-balanced and safe server environment.
