Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting very popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it'll function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you will discover a number of resources on the net. Among the main advantages of this OS is that it has thousands of software packages that can be freely customized in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the applications that you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each virtual private server plan that we offer and everything is set up within 1 hour, which means that you can start using the VPS without delay. We provide two separate editions due to the fact that some programs have certain requirements in order to work properly. You are able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will receive a world wide web interface and the software that is needed for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it with no Control Panel, you will receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you will be able to set up 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 admins will keep close track of your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

When the apps that you wish to run require Ubuntu as well as a lot of resources, you can opt for one of our Linux dedicated hosting and add this OS to your order with a click. You will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS, based on which edition your apps need in order to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Since you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on your machine and you will be able to set up anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't include a web hosting Control Panel, and you can manage your content through a Secure Shell console, however if you want, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your sites. If you do not want to lose time managing your server, you can take full advantage of our Managed Services package, which includes a number of tasks performed by our sysadmins on your behalf. The upgrade features routine updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
