Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting really popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is amazingly light and it can function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll find numerous resources online. One of the basic advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it has a great number of software packages that can be easily customized according to your needs as well as the requirements of the applications which you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each and every VPS server package that we supply and everything is set up within one hour, which means that you'll be able to start using the VPS right away. We provide two separate versions because certain pieces of software have certain requirements so as to function effectively. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface and all of the software that is necessary for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it without any Control Panel, you will receive only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to install additional software employing Secure Shell. When you choose to add our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep an eye on your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

You'll be able to acquire Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages, because we provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this OS. Thus, you will be able to select the more appropriate of the two, based on the type of apps which you wish to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control of the software environment. We'll set up just the Apache web server software, which means that you can add anything else you will need, even when it's not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You'll be able to control everything through a console, however if you would like, you can also set up a website hosting Control Panel, as long as it's compatible with Ubuntu. If you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we'll maintain your OS up-to-date every week and will ensure that you have the newest software packages for a well-balanced and safe server environment.
