Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting really popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it will run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a safe and stable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will discover lots of resources on the web. One of the major benefits of this Operating System is that it comes with a great number of software packages which can be easily modified according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps that you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each virtual private server plan that we provide and everything will be set up within 60 minutes, which means that you can start using your VPS without delay. We offer two different editions due to the fact that some programs have certain requirements so as to work efficiently. You are able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get an online interface and all the software that's needed for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; while in case you order it without any Control Panel, you'll get only the OS and the Apache web server software, so that you'll be able to install additional software using Secure Shell. If you choose to add the Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your hosting server and will update Ubuntu routinely.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Ubuntu is among the OS options which you'll find on our order page when you choose to acquire one of our Linux dedicated hosting services. We will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, to meet the system requirements of the applications which you want to set up on the server. You can also choose the software which will operate on your machine, due to the fact that we will set up only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be customized software that you choose. You can install the latter without any problems from a Secure Shell console, because you'll get root-level access and you'll get full control over your hosting server. You are free to install a website hosting Control Panel too and manage some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features OS updates.
