Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is amazingly light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you'll find numerous resources on the net. Among the main advantages of this Operating System is that it includes thousands of software packages which can be easily changed according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each and every VPS server package that we provide and everything will be set up within an hour, so you are able to start using the VPS without delay. We offer two separate editions due to the fact that some programs have certain requirements to work properly. 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'll receive an online interface and all the software that's required for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it with no Control Panel, you'll receive just the OS and the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to install additional software through Secure Shell. When you decide to add the Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our admins will monitor your hosting server and will update Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We offer Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with only a click on the order page. We provide two editions, so as to make sure that the hosting server will match the requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root admission to your server allows you to install various other software, as the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You are able to access the server securely through a console, but in case you prefer to use a web interface, you can set up any kind of Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you need to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you will be able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of plenty of tasks for you, among them regular Operating System upgrades.
