Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting really popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is amazingly light and it can function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any issue or have any question, you'll discover lots of resources on the web. Among the basic benefits of this OS is that it comes with numerous software packages that can be easily adjusted according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with all our VPS servers and you can buy 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 which you need if the software that you wish to run on your website hosting server has specific system requirements in this regard. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you will be able to install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have a web interface and all the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a setup is more efficient for users with less experience. We will also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

When the apps that you need to run require Ubuntu as well as a lot of resources, you should select one of our dedicated servers and add this OS to your order with a single click. You're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of the Operating System, depending on which release your apps need in order to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Due to the fact that you will have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on your machine and you can set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't feature a hosting Control Panel, so you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, yet if you want, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to control your web sites. In case you don't want to lose time controlling the server, you can employ the Managed Services package, which includes lots of tasks performed by our sysadmins on your behalf. The upgrade includes regular updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
