Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it'll run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will discover lots of resources online. Among the major benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it includes numerous software packages which can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs and the needs of the apps that you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each and every virtual private server plan that we offer and everything is set up within an hour, so you'll be able to start using the VPS without delay. We provide two different editions since some pieces of software have specific requirements so as to function properly. You are able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get an online interface and all the software that's necessary for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it without any Control Panel, you'll receive only the OS and the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to set up other software employing Secure Shell. If you decide to add the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your server and will update Ubuntu regularly.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options that you will find on our order page when you choose to get one of our Linux dedicated web hosting. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, in order to meet the system requirements of the applications that you want to set up on the server. You may also select the software which will operate on your machine, due to the fact that we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom-made software of your choice. You'll be able to install the latter without any problems employing a Secure Shell console, as you'll have root-level access and you'll get full control of your hosting server. You are free to install a web hosting Control Panel as well and control some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, includes OS updates.
