Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting very popular too. The reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll find numerous resources on the Internet. One of the major benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it comes with numerous software packages which can be easily modified according to your needs as well as the requirements of the applications which 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 OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

We offer Ubuntu with our Linux VPS web hosting and based on what requirements your web apps have, you are able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with just a few clicks throughout the order process. When you get your server with no web hosting Control Panel, the only software which will be installed along with Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, therefore you'll be able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to set up a software environment that you choose. If you obtain your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you can control almost everything as easily as you control a standard shared account and all the essential MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, however the root access to your server will be restricted. In case you don't have much experience, or if you do not want to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you will be able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that features once a week Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You'll be able to get Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages, due to the fact that we supply 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this OS. In this way, you can pick the more appropriate of the two, based on the type of apps that you wish to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control of the software setting. We'll install just the Apache web server software, which means that you will be able to add anything else you will need, even if it's not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You're able to control everything from a console, but if you would like, you may also install a web hosting Control Panel, as long as it is compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your Operating System up-to-date on a weekly basis and will ensure that you have the most recent software packages for a reliable and risk-free server environment.
