Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting pretty popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. 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 should have a safe and stable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will find lots of resources online. Among the main advantages of this Operating System is that it includes tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications that you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With all of our VPS web hosting plans, you're able to select the Ubuntu Operating System from 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'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. You can also choose if the VPS should include the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll find everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to make everything from your Internet browser, however the root access is restricted; while in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, which means that you can install anything freely because of the full root access that you will be given, yet the server management tasks will be done from a console. Our administrators can keep track of your VPS and update the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis when you add the optional Managed Services package which we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you will find on our order page in case you choose to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, so as to meet the system requirements of the applications which you wish to set up on the server. You can also select the software that will operate on your machine, because we will set up only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be tailor-made software of your choice. You're able to set up the latter without any problems using a Secure Shell console, because you'll receive root-level access and you'll get full control of your hosting server. You are free to set up a hosting Control Panel as well and manage some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, includes Operating System upgrades.
