Ubuntu is a widespread 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 OS is amazingly light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you will find lots of resources on the net. One of the major advantages of this OS is that it has a large number of software packages which can be easily changed in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the applications that you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We offer Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS service and depending on what requirements your web applications have, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with just a few clicks throughout the registration process. When you order your server with no hosting Control Panel, the sole software that will be installed along with Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to use a console to access the server and to create a software environment that you choose. If you get your server with the Hepsia website 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 standard shared account and all of the vital MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, however the root access to your server will be restricted. In case you don't have much experience, or in case you don't plan to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you are able to reap the benefits of our Managed Services upgrade, which includes every week Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We provide Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with only a click on the registration page. We supply two releases, to guarantee that the server will match the requirements of the software that you want to install. The full root access to the server will enable you to install various other software, because the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You can access the server securely from a console, yet in case you would like to use an online interface, you can set up any Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will handle a number of tasks for you, including regular OS upgrades.
