Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting pretty popular too. The reason is that the OS is amazingly light and it will function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you will have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll find lots of resources online. One of the key benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it has numerous software packages which can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the applications which you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each and every VPS server plan that we supply and everything is set up within 1 hour, so you can start using the VPS right away. We provide two separate versions since certain programs have certain requirements to operate efficiently. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get an online interface and all the software which is needed for your web sites will be pre-installed; while in case you order it devoid of Control Panel, you will get just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so that you're able to install other software employing Secure Shell. When you decide to include the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your server and will update Ubuntu on a regular basis.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

If the apps that you need to run require Ubuntu and a lot of resources, you can opt for our dedicated servers and add this OS to your order with just a single click. You can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of the Operating System, according to which release your applications need to function properly and to get the most of the server hardware. Since you will have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on your machine and you can install anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not come with a website hosting Control Panel, therefore you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, however if you'd like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to command your sites. If you do not want to lose time controlling the hosting server, you can use our Managed Services package, that features a lot of tasks done by our system administrators on your behalf. The upgrade features routine updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
