Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting really popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it can function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you will discover plenty of resources on the net. One of the key benefits of this OS is that it comes with numerous software packages which can be easily changed according to your needs and / or the requirements of the apps that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

With any of our Linux VPS web hosting services, you will be able to pick the Ubuntu OS from the order page. We're aware of the fact that some pieces of software have specific requirements in terms of the Operating System they can be installed on, which means that you can select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. Also, you can choose if the VPS should come with our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will receive everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you can make everything from your Internet browser, yet the root access will be restricted; while in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so that you'll be able to install anything freely due to the full root access which you'll be given, yet the server management tasks will be performed from a console. Our administrators can keep track of your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu setup weekly when you add the optional Managed Services package which we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

We supply 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, in order to guarantee that the server will match the system requirements of the software that you'd like to install. The full root accessibility to the server will help you install various other software, since the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You can access the server securely through a console, however if you prefer to use a world wide web 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 management tasks, you are able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of numerous tasks for you, including once a week OS upgrades.
