Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it will run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll find lots of resources on the web. Among the basic advantages of this OS is the fact that it has tens of thousands of software packages that can be easily changed in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the apps which you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

With any of our Linux VPS, you can choose the Ubuntu OS from the order page. We're aware of the fact that some programs have certain requirements with regard to the OS they are set up on, which means that you are able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. Also, you can select whether your VPS should include the Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll find everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to make everything through your web browser, however the root access will be restricted; whereas in the second case, you will get Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, so that you're able to set up anything freely because of the full root access that you will be given, but the server management tasks will be done from a console. Our system administrators will keep track of your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation weekly when you add the optional Managed Services package which we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

When the apps that you wish to run require Ubuntu and lots of resources, you can select our Linux dedicated hosting and add this Operating System to your order with a click. You can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of your Operating System, depending on which edition your apps need in order to work properly and to get the most of the server hardware. Since you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on the machine and you will be able to set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not include a web hosting Control Panel, therefore you can manage your content through a Secure Shell console, yet if you would like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your sites. If you do not want to lose time managing the hosting server, you can employ our Managed Services package, that includes a lot of tasks done by our admins on your behalf. The upgrade comes with routine updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
