Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting quite popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is very light and it will function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a protected and stable software environment on your server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will discover a number of resources online. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is that it has numerous software packages that can be easily modified in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the applications that you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

With all of our Linux VPS web hosting, you can decide on the Ubuntu OS on the order page. We're aware of the fact that some programs have certain requirements with regard to the OS they can be set up on, so you're able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. Also, you can choose if the VPS should include our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll have everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you can make everything from your online browser, yet the root access will be limited; while in the second case, you will get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so that you'll be able to set up anything freely because of the full root access that you will be given, yet the server management tasks will be performed using a console. Our sysadmins will keep track of your VPS and update the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis if you add the optional Managed Services package which we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

We offer Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you are able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with only a click on the order page. We provide two releases, so as to make sure that the hosting server matches the requirements of the software that you'd like to install. The full root accessibility to your server will allow you to set up various other software, because the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server safely from a console, yet if you like better to use a web interface, you're free to set up any kind of Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you can add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of plenty of tasks for you, including once a week OS updates.
