Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you'll find lots of resources on the Internet. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is that it comes with a large number of software packages that can be easily customized according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications that you intend 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 is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With all of our Linux VPS servers, you're able to pick the Ubuntu Operating System on the order page. We're aware of the fact that some programs have certain requirements in terms of the Operating System they are set up on, so you are able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. In addition, you can select whether your VPS should feature the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will get everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you'll be able to do everything by using your Internet browser, yet the root access is limited; while in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, so you can install anything freely thanks to the full root access which you will be given, however the server management tasks will be performed using a console. Our system administrators can keep track of your VPS and update the Ubuntu setup weekly when you add the optional Managed Services package that we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you can find on our registration page when 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 satisfy the system requirements of the applications that you would like to install on the server. You can also select the software which will run on your machine, since we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom-made software that you choose. You can install the latter without any problems using a Secure Shell console, as you'll have root-level access and you'll get full control of your hosting server. You can install a web hosting Control Panel too and manage some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, comes with OS upgrades.
