Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular too. The reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you will discover numerous resources on the net. Among the basic advantages of this OS is that it contains thousands of software packages that can be easily customized in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the apps which you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We offer Ubuntu with all of our VPS hosting plans and based on what system requirements your web applications have, you are able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with just a couple of mouse clicks during the registration process. If you obtain your server without a hosting Control Panel, the sole software that will be set up along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to use a console to gain access to the hosting server and to build a software environment of your choice. When you order your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you'll be able to control almost everything just as easily as you manage an ordinary shared account and all required MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to the server will be limited. In case you don't have a lot experience, or in case you don't wish to waste time on VPS control procedures, you're able to take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, which includes every week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the OS options which you can find on our registration page when you decide to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, so as to satisfy the system requirements of the apps which you'd like to install on the server. You may also choose the software that will run on your machine, since we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be tailor-made software that you choose. You can set up the latter without problems through a Secure Shell console, since you will have root-level access and you'll have full control over the server. You can set up a web hosting Control Panel too and control some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, contains OS upgrades.
