Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting really popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is extremely light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you will find numerous resources on the net. Among the major benefits of this OS is that it includes numerous software packages that can be easily modified according to your needs and the requirements of the applications that you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS hosting packages and depending on what system requirements your web applications have, you'll be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with just a few mouse clicks during the registration process. When you order your server without a web hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be installed on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to use a console to access the hosting server and to build a software environment of your liking. When you order your server with our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you'll be able to control almost everything just as easily as you control an ordinary shared account and all of the required MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, yet the root access to your server is limited. If you do not have a lot experience, or in case you don't like to waste time on VPS control procedures, you will be able to take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
We offer Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the order page. We provide two editions, in order to make sure that the server will meet the requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root accessibility to the server will allow you to install any other software, since the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You can access the server securely from a console, yet if you prefer to use a web interface, you're free to set up any Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to focus your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you will be able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of a variety of tasks for you, among them regular OS updates.
