Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting really popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it can run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover a number of resources on the net. One of the key benefits of this Operating System is that it contains tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely adjusted according to your needs and the needs of the applications that you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS
We provide Ubuntu with all of our VPS services and depending on what system requirements your web apps have, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with only a few clicks during the registration process. When you obtain your server with no web hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software which will be installed in addition to Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you are able to use a console to access the website hosting server and to install a software environment of your liking. When you get your server with our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you are able to control almost everything just as easily as you manage a standard shared account and all vital MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to the server will be limited. If you do not have much experience, or if you do not like to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you are able to reap the benefits of the Managed Services upgrade, which includes once a week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
You are able to acquire Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages, as we provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this OS. This way, you're able to pick the more appropriate of the two, depending on the type of apps that you want to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control of the software setting. We will set up just the Apache web server software, so you can add everything else you will need, even if it is not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You'll be able to control everything using a console, but if you would like, you can also set up a web hosting Control Panel, as long as it is compatible with Ubuntu. When you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your OS up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the most recent software packages for a well-balanced and secure server environment.
