Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting very popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a secure and dependable software environment on your server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will find lots of resources on the web. One of the main advantages of this OS is the fact that it comes with numerous software packages which can be freely changed in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the apps which you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of 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 Servers

Ubuntu is available with all our VPS plans and you can obtain a VPS running it in less than sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so that you'll be able to pick the one that you need when the software that you would like to run on the web hosting server has specific system requirements in this regard. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed without a Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you can install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have a web interface and all the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but such a setup is more suitable for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so throughout the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is among the OS options which you can find on our registration page in case you want to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, so as to match the system requirements of the applications which you would like to install on the server. You can also choose the software that will run on your machine, as we will install only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be tailor-made software that you choose. You will be able to install the latter without any problems through a Secure Shell console, since you'll receive root-level access and you will have full control of the server. You are free to set up a website hosting Control Panel too and control some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, features OS upgrades.
