Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting pretty popular too. The reason is that the operating system is very light and it can run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a secure and dependable software environment on your server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will find lots of resources on the web. One of the major benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it includes numerous software packages which can be easily changed according to your needs as well as the needs of the apps that you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
We supply Ubuntu with our VPS web hosting services
and based on what requirements your web applications have, you will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with only a couple of mouse clicks throughout the order process. If you order your server with no website hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software that will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you're able to use a console to access the server and to build a software environment that you choose. When you order your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have an online interface with which you can control almost everything as quickly as you control a regular shared account and all of the required MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, however the root access to the server is limited. When you don't have a lot of experience, or if you don't want to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you will be able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that features every week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If the applications that you need to run require Ubuntu and a lot of resources, you can opt for our Linux dedicated hosting services
and add this Operating System to your order with a single click. You will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS, according to which edition your applications need to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware. As you'll have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on your machine and you'll be able to install anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not contain a hosting Control Panel, therefore you can manage your content using a Secure Shell console, yet if you'd like, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to take care of your web sites. In case you do not want to lose time taking care of your server, you can employ our Managed Services package, that includes many tasks performed by our system administrators on your behalf. The upgrade features regular updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
