Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is that the OS is really light and it can function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will find a number of resources on the net. One of the basic advantages of this Operating System is that it comes with numerous software packages which can be freely customized in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the apps that you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you'll be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each and every virtual private server package that we supply and everything is set up within 60 minutes, therefore you're able to start using the VPS without delay. We offer two different editions because certain pieces of software have specific requirements in order to operate efficiently. You'll be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get an online interface and all of the software which is necessary for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it devoid of Control Panel, you will get just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to install additional software through Secure Shell. When you choose to include the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep an eye on your server and will update Ubuntu on a regular basis.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

You are able to acquire Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages, because we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this OS. In this way, you are able to select the more appropriate of the two, based on the type of applications which you need to install and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the Operating System. You will have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control over the software environment. We will set up only the Apache web server software, so you are able to add everything else you may need, even when it is not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You can manage everything using a console, but if you would like, you can also install a website hosting Control Panel, as long as it supports Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your OS up-to-date on a weekly basis and will ensure that you have the newest software packages for a stable and secure server environment.
