Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting very popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it will run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll discover numerous resources online. Among the basic advantages of this OS is the fact that it has numerous software packages that can be freely changed in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications which you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you can get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each and every VPS server package that we provide and everything will be set up within 1 hour, which means that you are able to start using your VPS right away. We supply two separate editions because some programs have particular requirements so as to operate effectively. You will be able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get a world wide web interface and all of the software that is needed for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; while when you order it with no Control Panel, you will receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you are able to install additional software through Secure Shell. When you decide to add the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep an eye on your hosting server and will update Ubuntu on a regular basis.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options that you can find on our registration page if you want to acquire one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, to match the system requirements of the applications that you need to set up on the server. You can also select the software which will run on your machine, as we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom-made software that you choose. You are able to set up the latter without problems employing a Secure Shell console, as you'll receive root-level access and you will get full control over the server. You are free to set up a website hosting Control Panel too and control some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features OS upgrades.
