Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular too. The main reason is that the OS is extremely light and it'll run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll discover plenty of resources online. Among the key advantages of this Operating System is that it includes tens of thousands of software packages that can be easily changed in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the apps that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We offer Ubuntu with our VPS servers and based on what system requirements your web apps have, you're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with only a few mouse clicks during the registration process. If you get your server devoid of hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you will be able to use a console to access the hosting server and to create a software environment of your choice. When you acquire your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface with which you can manage almost everything as easily as you manage a regular shared account and all the vital MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, however the root access to the server is restricted. In case you don't have a lot of experience, or in case you don't wish to waste time on VPS management procedures, you are able to take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which includes once a week Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
If the apps that you want to run require Ubuntu and lots of resources, you should select our dedicated service and add this OS to your order with just a single click. You'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of your Operating System, according to which release your applications need in order to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware. As you'll have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on the machine and you can install anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't include a hosting Control Panel, so you can manage your content using a Secure Shell console, yet if you would like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to control your web sites. In case you do not want to lose time controlling the hosting server, you can reap the benefits of our Managed Services package, that features plenty of tasks performed by our sysadmins on your behalf.
