Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular too. The reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll find lots of resources on the Internet. One of the main benefits of this Operating System is that it features tens of thousands of software packages which can be easily customized according to your needs as well as the requirements of the applications that you want 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 isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We supply Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS servers and depending on what system requirements your web apps have, you're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with only a couple of clicks throughout the order process. If you order your server without a web hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, therefore you're able to use a console to access the website hosting server and to build a software environment of your choice. If you get your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you are able to manage almost everything as easily as you control a standard shared account and all important MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to your server is limited. If you don't have a lot of experience, or if you don't plan to waste time on VPS control procedures, you'll be able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which includes every week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We supply Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the registration page. We offer two releases, in order to guarantee that the hosting server matches the requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root accessibility to the server will help you install any other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You can access the server safely from a console, but if you like better to use a world wide web interface, you can set up any Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you would like to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of numerous tasks for you, including weekly Operating System upgrades.
