Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a secure and dependable software environment on your server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any issue or have any question, you'll find plenty of resources on the web. Among the basic benefits of this OS is that it features tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely changed according to your needs as well as the requirements of the apps that you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each and every VPS server plan that we offer and everything will be set up within 1 hour, so you're able to start using your VPS right away. We supply two different editions due to the fact that certain programs have specific requirements to operate effectively. You'll be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface and all the software that's needed for your sites will be pre-installed; while in case you order it devoid of Control Panel, you'll receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you will be able to install additional software through Secure Shell. When you choose to include the Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep track of your hosting server and will update Ubuntu regularly.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We provide Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with just a click on the registration page. We provide two versions, to make sure that the server matches the system requirements of the software that you'd like to install. The full root admission to the server allows you to install any other software, since the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You can access the server securely using a console, however in case you like better to use a web interface, you are free to install any Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to focus your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle various tasks for you, among them regular OS updates.
