Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will find numerous resources online. One of the basic benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it includes a great number of software packages that can be easily modified in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications which you would like 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 program code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each VPS server plan that we provide and everything will be set up within 1 hour, which means that you are able to start using the VPS without delay. We offer two different versions due to the fact that some pieces of software have specific requirements in order to work effectively. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface and all of the software that's needed for your web sites will be pre-installed; while when you order it with no Control Panel, you'll get only the OS and the Apache web server software, so you can set up additional software employing Secure Shell. When you choose to include the Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our admins will monitor your server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
If the apps that you would like to run require Ubuntu as well as plenty of system resources, you can select one of our dedicated service and add this OS to your order with just a single click. You will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of your Operating System, depending on which release your apps need to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Since you will have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on the machine and you'll be able to install anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't come with a website hosting Control Panel, which means that you can manage your content using a Secure Shell console, however if you would like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your Internet sites. If you don't want to lose time taking care of your hosting server, you can use the Managed Services package, which includes lots of tasks performed by our admins on your behalf. The package comes with routine updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
