Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting pretty popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you'll discover plenty of resources on the net. Among the key advantages of this OS is the fact that it comes with thousands of software packages that can be freely adjusted in accordance with your needs and / or the needs 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 isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
With any of our VPS servers, you can pick the Ubuntu Operating System from the order page. We're aware of the fact that some programs have certain requirements with regard to the Operating System they can be set up on, which means that you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. Also, you can select if the VPS should include our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will get everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you are able to make everything by using your Internet browser, yet the root access is restricted; while in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so that you can install anything freely thanks to the full root access which you will be given, but the server management tasks are performed using a console. Our admins will keep track of your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis when you add the additional Managed Services bundle which we offer.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We offer Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you are able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with only a click on the order page. We offer two versions, in order to make sure that the server meets the system requirements of the software that you wish to set up. The full root admission to the server will help you set up various other software, as the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server safely using a console, yet in case you would like to use an online interface, you're free to set up any Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to focus your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you'll be able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will handle plenty of tasks for you, including once a week OS upgrades.
