Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is amazingly light and it will run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will find lots of resources on the web. Among the main advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it features a large number of software packages that can be easily customized according to your needs as well as the requirements of the apps which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any 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 Servers
When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you'll be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with each and every VPS server
plan that we provide and everything will be set up within one hour, so you're able to start using the VPS without delay. We offer two separate editions since some pieces of software have specific requirements in order to operate effectively. You'll be able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get a world wide web interface and the software that's necessary for your sites will be pre-installed; while if you order it without any Control Panel, you'll receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so that you can set up additional software through 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 hosting server and will update Ubuntu on a regular basis.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is one of the OS options which you can find on our order page in case you want to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans
. We will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, so as to match the system requirements of the applications which you would like to install on the server. You may also select the software which will run on your machine, as we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be customized software that you choose. You are able to install the latter without any problems from a Secure Shell console, since you will receive root-level access and you'll get full control of your server. You can set up a website hosting Control Panel too and manage some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features Operating System upgrades.
