Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting quite popular too. The main reason is that the OS is very light and it will function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you will have a protected and dependable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover plenty of resources on the Internet. One of the key advantages of this OS is the fact that it features a large number of software packages that can be freely changed according to your needs and / or the needs of the applications which you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We supply Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS web hosting plans and depending on what requirements your web apps have, you're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with just a few clicks during the order process. When you order your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the only software which will be installed on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, thus you will be able to use a console in order to access the website hosting server and to build a software environment of your choice. When you obtain your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface with which you will be able to manage almost everything as easily as you manage a regular shared account and all essential MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, however the root access to the server is limited. If you don't have much experience, or in case you don't wish to waste time on VPS management procedures, you're able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which includes regular Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

When the applications that you wish to run require Ubuntu and a lot of resources, you should opt for one of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans and add this Operating System to your order with just a single click. You are able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of your OS, based on which edition your apps need to function properly and to get the most of the server hardware. Due to the fact that you will have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on the machine and you will be able to install anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't feature a web hosting Control Panel, which means that you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, but if you would like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to command your websites. If you don't want to lose time controlling your web hosting server, you can employ our Managed Services package, that includes plenty of tasks done by our system administrators on your behalf. The package features regular updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
