Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting very popular too. The reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will discover a number of resources on the Internet. Among the major advantages of this OS is that it features numerous software packages that can be easily customized in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the apps which you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each VPS server plan that we offer and everything will be set up within 1 hour, so you can start using the VPS right away. We provide two separate versions since some programs have certain requirements in order to operate properly. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will receive a world wide web interface and all the software that's needed for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it with no Control Panel, you will get only the OS and the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to install other software through Secure Shell. When you choose to add the Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our admins will keep an eye on your hosting server and will update Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You are able to obtain Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans, as we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this OS. In this way, you can choose the more appropriate of the two, depending on the type of apps which you need to install and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control over the software setting. We will set up just the Apache web server software, therefore you can add whatever else you will need, even if it is not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You'll be able to manage everything through a console, but if you would like, you can also install a website hosting Control Panel, provided that it's compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the newest software packages for a well-balanced and risk-free server environment.
