Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting pretty popular too. The reason is that the OS is really light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a secure and dependable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll find lots of resources on the net. One of the basic advantages of this OS is the fact that it has thousands of software packages that can be freely changed in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you can get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each virtual private server plan that we provide and everything will be set up within one hour, therefore you are able to start using the VPS without delay. We offer two separate editions due to the fact that certain programs have certain requirements to operate effectively. You'll be able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will receive a world wide web interface and the software that's necessary for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it with no Control Panel, you will get only the OS and the Apache web server software, so you will be able to set up additional software employing Secure Shell. When you decide to add our Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep track of your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu regularly.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

We offer Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with just a click on the order page. We provide two editions, in order to ensure that the hosting server matches the requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root access to the server will help you install any other software, since the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server securely using a console, but if you like better to use a world wide web interface, you are free to set up any kind of Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to focus your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you will be able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will handle numerous tasks for you, among them once a week Operating System updates.
