Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting really popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it'll function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, so if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover numerous resources on the web. One of the key benefits of this OS is the fact that it comes with thousands of software packages which can be freely customized according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you are able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with each and every virtual private server package that we supply and everything will be set up within an hour, which means that you will be able to start using your VPS without delay. We provide two separate versions because certain programs have certain requirements to function effectively. You can manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll receive an online interface and the software that is needed for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it with no Control Panel, you will get only the OS and the Apache web server software, which means that you can set up additional software through Secure Shell. When you choose to include our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep close track of your server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can acquire Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans, as we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this OS. Thus, you're able to choose the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of applications that you would like to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control of the software environment. We will set up just the Apache web server software, therefore you'll be able to add everything else you may need, even if it is not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You are able to control everything using a console, however if you would like, you can also set up a website hosting Control Panel, on condition that it is compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your OS up-to-date on a weekly basis and will make sure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a reliable and secure server environment.
