Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it'll run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you will have a safe and stable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll find plenty of resources on the Internet. Among the key benefits of this OS is the fact that it comes with tens of thousands of software packages which can be easily changed in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the apps which you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

We supply Ubuntu with our VPS hosting services and based on what requirements your web apps have, you are able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with just a few clicks throughout the registration process. When you order your server devoid of hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to build a software environment of your choice. When you get your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you will be able to control almost everything as easily as you control a regular shared account and all of the essential MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, however the root access to your server is limited. If you do not have a lot experience, or if you don't like to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you will be able to take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which includes every week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

We provide Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the order page. We offer two versions, in order to ensure that the server will match the system requirements of the software that you'd like to set up. The full root accessibility to the server will allow you to set up any other software, since the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You can access the server securely from a console, yet in case you would like to use an online interface, you are free to set up any Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you need to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you'll be able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will handle plenty of tasks for you, including regular OS upgrades.
