Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting pretty popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is really light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really 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 risk-free and stable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. Furthermore, 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 discover lots of resources on the net. Among the major advantages of this OS is the fact that it features numerous software packages which can be easily changed in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the applications that you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We provide Ubuntu with all our VPS servers and depending on what requirements your web applications have, you are able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with just a few mouse clicks throughout the registration process. If you order your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the sole software that will be installed on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you're able to use a console in order to access the server and to set up a software environment of your choice. If you get your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you're able to control almost everything as easily as you manage a regular shared account and all vital MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, but the root access to your server is restricted. In case you don't have much experience, or if you don't like to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you are able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that features every week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You're able to get Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages, as we supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. In this way, you'll be able to pick the more appropriate of them, depending on the type of apps which you'd like to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control over the software setting. We'll install only the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to add anything else you need, even when it's not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You'll be able to manage everything using a console, but if you want, you may also install a web hosting Control Panel, provided that it is compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will make sure that you have the latest software packages for a stable and secure server environment.
