Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting quite popular too. The reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources online. Among the basic advantages of this OS is the fact that it contains tens of thousands of software packages that can be freely adjusted according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS web hosting services and you can obtain a VPS running it in just 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so that you're able to pick the one which you need when the software that you wish to run on the web hosting server has particular system requirements in this regard. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you'll be able to set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have a web interface and all the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of setup is more efficient for users with less experience. We will also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options that you will find on our order page in case you choose to obtain one of our Linux dedicated hosting services. We will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, so as to match the system requirements of the apps which you wish to install on the server. You can also choose the software that will run on your machine, because we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be customized software of your liking. You're able to set up the latter without problems using a Secure Shell console, because you will have root-level access and you'll have full control of the hosting server. You are free to install a website hosting Control Panel as well and control some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, features OS updates.
