Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting pretty popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is very light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll discover lots of resources on the Internet. Among the main benefits of this OS is the fact that it contains a large number of software packages which can be freely changed in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the applications that you intend 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 isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you will be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each virtual private server plan that we supply and everything will be set up within 1 hour, so you are able to start using the VPS without delay. We offer two separate versions because some programs have particular requirements so as to operate properly. You can manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will receive a world wide web interface and the software that is necessary for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it without any Control Panel, you will get just the OS and the Apache web server software, so that you can install other software through Secure Shell. If you decide to include the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep track of your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

We offer Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the registration page. We supply two releases, to make sure that the server meets the requirements of the software that you want to set up. The full root accessibility to the server will help you install various other software, since the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You're able to access the server securely from a console, but in case you like better to use an online interface, you're free to set up any Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to focus your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you can add our Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of plenty of tasks for you, among them once a week OS upgrades.
