Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you'll discover lots of resources online. Among the basic benefits of this OS is that it includes a large number of software packages which can be freely changed in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the apps that you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each and every virtual private server package that we supply and everything is set up within one hour, which means that you're able to start using your VPS without delay. We provide two separate editions because certain pieces of software have certain requirements in order to operate efficiently. You're able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a world wide web interface and all of the software that is needed for your websites will be pre-installed; while when you order it devoid of Control Panel, you'll receive only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so that you will be able to set up other software through Secure Shell. When you choose to include the Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep an eye on your server and will update Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Ubuntu is among the Operating System options that you can find on our registration page in case you decide to acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, to satisfy the system requirements of the apps which you intend to install on the server. You can also choose the software which will operate on your machine, since we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be customized software that you choose. You'll be able to install the latter without any problems through a Secure Shell console, since you'll receive root-level access and you'll get full control over the server. You are free to install a web hosting Control Panel as well and control some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, comes with OS upgrades.
