Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting really popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you will find numerous resources online. Among the major advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it comes with a large number of software packages that can be freely customized in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the applications that you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We supply Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS web hosting plans and depending on what requirements your web apps have, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with just a few mouse clicks throughout the registration process. When you order your server with no web hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software which will be set up along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, thus you will be able to use a console to access the hosting server and to build a software environment of your choice. If you get your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have a world wide web interface with which you can manage almost everything just as easily as you manage a standard shared account and all 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 of experience, or in case you do not wish to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you're able to reap the benefits of the Managed Services upgrade, which features once a week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You're able to acquire Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans, because we provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. In this way, you are able to choose the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of applications that you wish to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control of the software setting. We'll set up only the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to add whatever else you will need, even if it's not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You can control everything using a console, yet if you want, you may also set up a hosting Control Panel, as long as it supports Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the latest software packages for a reliable and risk-free server environment.
