Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a protected and dependable software environment on your server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll discover plenty of resources on the Internet. Among the major advantages of this Operating System is that it comes with a great number of software packages that can be easily customized in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the apps that you would like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We provide Ubuntu with all our VPS hosting service and based on what requirements your web apps have, you will be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with just a couple of clicks during the order process. When you get your server with no website hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software that will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, therefore you are able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to set up a software environment of your liking. If you get your server with our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you're able to control almost everything just as easily as you manage an ordinary shared account and all required MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to the server is restricted. When you don't have much experience, or in case you don't wish to waste time on VPS management procedures, you are able to reap the benefits of our Managed Services upgrade, that features once a week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We provide Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with just a click on the order page. We provide two releases, to ensure that the server will meet the system requirements of the software that you wish to install. The full root accessibility to the server allows you to set up various other software, since the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server securely through a console, but in case you like better to use a world wide web interface, you're free to set up any Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you would like to focus your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you're able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of numerous tasks for you, which includes regular OS upgrades.
