Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting pretty popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will find numerous resources on the Internet. One of the basic advantages of this OS is the fact that it has a large number of software packages that can be freely adjusted according to your needs and / or the requirements of the apps which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

We supply Ubuntu with all of our VPS and based on what system requirements your web apps have, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with only a couple of mouse clicks throughout the order process. When you obtain your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the only software which will be installed in addition to Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, therefore you are able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to create a software environment that you choose. When you obtain your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you're able to control almost everything just as easily as you control a standard shared account and all the essential MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to the server will be limited. If you don't have much experience, or in case you don't want to waste time on VPS control procedures, you're able to reap the benefits of the Managed Services upgrade, that features once a week Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

You can get Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages, because we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this OS. This way, you can pick the more appropriate of them, based on the type of applications which you need to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control of the software environment. We will set up just the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to add whatever else you'll need, even if it is not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You can manage everything from a console, but if you want, you may also set up a web hosting Control Panel, as long as it is compatible with Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep 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 stable and secure server environment.
