Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will find plenty of resources on the net. One of the key benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it has tens of thousands of software packages which can be easily modified in accordance with your needs and the requirements 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 any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

We provide Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS hosting and based on what system requirements your web applications have, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with only a couple of mouse clicks during the registration process. If you get your server devoid of website hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software that will be set up along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, thus you will be able to use a console to gain access to the server and to install a software environment that you choose. When you obtain your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you will be able to control almost everything as easily as you control a standard shared account and all the important MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, yet the root access to your server will be restricted. When you don't have a lot of experience, or if you do not plan to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you will be able to take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

When the applications that you would like to run require Ubuntu and lots of resources, you can choose one of our Linux dedicated web hosting and add this Operating System to your order with just a single click. You are able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS, based on which release your apps need in order to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Due to the fact that you'll have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on your machine and you can set up anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't come with a hosting Control Panel, which means that you can manage your content through a Secure Shell console, but if you would like, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your websites. If you don't want to lose time managing the web hosting server, you can reap the benefits of our Managed Services package, that includes many tasks performed by our system administrators on your behalf. The package comes with regular updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
