Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting really popular as well. The reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it'll run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will find lots of resources on the net. Among the key benefits of this OS is the fact that it contains tens of thousands of software packages that can be freely adjusted in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the apps that you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
Ubuntu is available with all our Linux VPS hosting and you can get a VPS running it in just one hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so that you will be able to choose the one that you need if the software that you would like to run on the server has specific system requirements in this regard. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you will be able to install anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have an online interface and all the required web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a installation is more effective for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
You're able to get Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans, considering that we provide 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this Operating System. In this way, you're able to select the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of applications that you need to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the Operating System. You will have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control over the software setting. We'll install only the Apache web server software, which means that you can add everything else you'll need, even if it's not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You will be able to control everything through a console, yet if you would like, you may also set up a website hosting Control Panel, as long as it supports Ubuntu. If you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your Operating System up-to-date every week and will make sure that you have the latest software packages for a stable and safe server environment.
