Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting very popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is extremely light and it'll run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will discover plenty of resources on the web. Among the basic benefits of this OS is that it contains a great number of software packages which can be freely customized according to your needs and the needs of the apps that you'd like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With all of our Linux VPS service, you'll be able to choose the Ubuntu Operating System from the order page. We are aware of the fact that some pieces of software have certain requirements with regard to the OS they are set up on, so you are able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. In addition, you can choose whether your VPS should include the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will receive everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you will be able to do everything through your web browser, however the root access is limited; whereas in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, which means that you can set up anything freely because of the full root access which you will be given, but the server management tasks can be performed from a console. Our administrators will monitor your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu setup weekly when you add the optional Managed Services bundle that we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We supply Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with only a click on the order page. We supply two editions, so as to ensure that the hosting server meets the system requirements of the software that you wish to install. The full root accessibility to the server allows you to install any other software, because the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server securely using a console, but in case you prefer to use an online interface, you are free to install any kind of Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you are able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle a number of tasks for you, including regular OS upgrades.
