Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting really popular too. The reason is that the operating system is very light and it will function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will discover numerous resources on the web. One of the main benefits of this OS is that it features numerous software packages which can be freely modified according to your needs as well as the requirements of the apps that you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each and every VPS server package that we offer and everything will be set up within 60 minutes, so you can start using the VPS without delay. We provide two separate editions because some programs have certain requirements to work effectively. You are able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface and the software that's necessary for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; while in case you order it without any Control Panel, you will get only the OS and the Apache web server software, so that you will be able to install additional software using Secure Shell. If you decide to include the Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your hosting server and will update Ubuntu on a regular basis.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We offer Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with just a click on the order page. We offer two releases, to make sure that the server meets the system requirements of the software that you'd like to set up. The full root accessibility to the server allows you to set up various other software, since the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You are able to access the server safely through a console, yet in case you prefer to use an online interface, you're free to install any Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to focus your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you'll be able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of various tasks for you, among them once a week OS updates.
