Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting really popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it will run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll discover lots of resources online. Among the major benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it comes with thousands of software packages that can be easily adjusted according to your needs and the needs of the apps that you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with all our VPS servers
and you can acquire a VPS running it in just sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so you're able to choose the one that you need if the software that you want to run on the server has particular system requirements in this regard. You may 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 using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you'll have a world wide web interface and all the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of installation is more efficient for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add our 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
We provide Ubuntu with our dedicated server
packages and if you need this Operating System, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with only a click on the order page. We provide two releases, in order to make sure that the server will match the system requirements of the software that you want to set up. The full root admission to the server will enable you to install any other software, since the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server safely from a console, yet in case you prefer to use an online interface, you can set up any kind of Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you want to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you can add our Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of various tasks for you, among them regular OS updates.
