Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting very popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you will have a protected and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will find a number of resources on the net. One of the major advantages of this OS is that it comes with a large number of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the apps that you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you'll be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each VPS server
package that we offer and everything will be set up within one hour, so you are able to start using the VPS right away. We supply two different versions due to the fact that certain programs have particular requirements so as to function efficiently. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a world wide web interface and all the software that's required for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it devoid of Control Panel, you will receive only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so that you are able to install other software employing Secure Shell. When you choose to add the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep track of your server and will update Ubuntu regularly.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is one of the OS options which you will find on our registration page in case you choose to get one of our dedicated servers
. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, to meet the system requirements of the apps that you intend to set up on the server. You may also choose the software that will run on your machine, due to the fact that we will set up only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom-made software of your liking. You'll be able to set up the latter without problems through a Secure Shell console, as you'll have root-level access and you'll have full control of the hosting server. You can install a web hosting Control Panel as well and control some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features OS upgrades.
