Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting very popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is extremely light and it'll function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will find numerous resources online. One of the key benefits of this OS is the fact that it contains tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely changed in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the applications that you would like 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 code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

With any of our Linux VPS web hosting packages, you're able to choose the Ubuntu OS from the order page. We recognize the fact that some programs have particular requirements in terms of the OS they're set up on, which means that you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. In addition, you can choose if your VPS should include our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll find everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etcetera. software, and you can make everything by using your Internet browser, yet the root access will be limited; while in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, so you will be able to install anything freely because of the full root access that you'll be given, but the server management tasks will be done using a console. Our administrators will keep track of your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu installation weekly when you add the additional Managed Services bundle that we offer.

We offer Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the order page. We provide two versions, in order to make sure that the hosting server meets the requirements of the software that you would like to set up. The full root accessibility to your server allows you to install various other software, since the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server securely from a console, but in case you like better to use an online interface, you're free to install any Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to focus your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you'll be able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle plenty of tasks for you, including once a week Operating System upgrades.
