Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting quite popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it will run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources on the web. Among the main advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it contains a large number of software packages that can be freely customized in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the apps 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, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

We provide Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS packages and depending on what system requirements your web apps have, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with only a few mouse clicks throughout the order process. If you order your server devoid of hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software which will be set up along with Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you are able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to install a software environment that you choose. When you acquire your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface with which you will be able to manage almost everything as quickly as you control a standard shared account and all necessary MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to your server will be restricted. If you do not have a lot of experience, or if you don't want to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you are able to reap the benefits of our Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options that you will find on our registration page when you choose to acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, in order to match the system requirements of the apps that you'd like to set up on the server. You can also select the software which will run on your machine, due to the fact that we will install only the Apache web server software, so all else can be tailor-made software that you choose. You can set up the latter without problems employing a Secure Shell console, because you'll receive root-level access and you'll have full control of your hosting server. You can install a website hosting Control Panel too and control some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, comes with OS upgrades.
