Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is really light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you will have a protected and stable software environment on your hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll find plenty of resources on the net. Among the basic advantages of this Operating System is that it comes with thousands of software packages which can be easily customized according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps that you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with each and every virtual private server package that we provide and everything will be set up within 1 hour, therefore you will be able to start using your VPS without delay. We offer two separate versions due to the fact that some pieces of software have specific requirements in order to work effectively. You're able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get an online interface and the software which is necessary for your websites will be pre-installed; while when you order it without any Control Panel, you'll receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to install additional software using Secure Shell. When you decide to include our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our admins will monitor your server and will update Ubuntu regularly.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

We supply Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with only a click on the order page. We supply two editions, to ensure that the server meets the requirements of the software that you want to install. The full root admission to your server allows you to set up any other software, because the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server safely using a console, but in case you would like to use a web interface, you can set up any Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you need to focus your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you are able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of plenty of tasks for you, among them once a week Operating System upgrades.
