Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting really popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it can run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll find numerous resources on the net. Among the major benefits of this OS is the fact that it comes with thousands of software packages which can be freely customized according to your needs and / or the requirements of the apps which you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We offer Ubuntu with all of our VPS web hosting plans and depending on what requirements your web applications have, you will be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with just a couple of mouse clicks throughout the registration process. When you obtain your server devoid of hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software which will be installed in addition to Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you are able to use a console to access the website hosting server and to install a software environment of your liking. When you acquire your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you'll be able to manage almost everything as easily as you control a regular shared account and all the necessary MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, but the root access to the server will be restricted. When you don't have much experience, or if you don't plan to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you will be able to reap the benefits of our Managed Services upgrade, which features weekly Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We supply Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the registration page. We provide two releases, to ensure that the hosting server meets the requirements of the software that you would like to set up. The full root admission to the server will allow you to set up any other software, as the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You're able to access the server safely from a console, but if you like better to use an online interface, you're free to install any kind of Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to focus your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of various tasks for you, which includes regular OS updates.
