Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting very popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will discover plenty of resources on the net. Among the basic advantages of this Operating System is that it has numerous software packages that can be freely changed in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the applications that you intend to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each VPS server plan that we offer and everything will be set up within an hour, so you're able to start using your VPS without delay. We offer two different versions since some pieces of software have certain requirements to operate properly. You're able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface and all of the software that's required for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it with no Control Panel, you will receive only the OS and the Apache web server software, so you're able to set up other software employing Secure Shell. When you decide to include our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep track of your server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options which you will find on our order page in case you choose to get one of our dedicated servers. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, to meet the system requirements of the applications that you intend to install on the server. You can also select the software which will operate on your machine, due to the fact that we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom software of your liking. You'll be able to set up the latter without problems through a Secure Shell console, since you'll get root-level access and you'll get full control over the server. You can install a hosting Control Panel too and control some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features OS updates.
