Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting very popular too. The main reason is that the OS is extremely light and it can function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll discover lots of resources on the net. Among the key advantages of this OS is the fact that it comes with tens of thousands of software packages which can be easily modified according to your needs and / or the requirements of the applications that you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We supply Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS web hosting service
and depending on what requirements your web apps have, you're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with only a couple of mouse clicks during the order process. When you get your server with no website hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software which will be installed on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, therefore you can use a console to access the website hosting server and to create a software environment of your choice. When you acquire your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you can manage almost everything just as easily as you manage a standard shared account and all required MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to your server will be restricted. In case you don't have a lot of experience, or if you don't plan to waste time on VPS control procedures, you are able to take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you will find on our registration page if you want to acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers
. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, in order to meet the system requirements of the apps which you need to install on the server. You may also choose the software which will operate on your machine, due to the fact that we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom-made software that you choose. You are able to install the latter without any problems from a Secure Shell console, as you will receive root-level access and you will get full control of the hosting server. You can set up a website hosting Control Panel as well and control some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features Operating System upgrades.
