Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting pretty popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it can function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you will discover plenty of resources on the web. One of the basic benefits of this Operating System is that it includes numerous software packages which can be easily modified according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each VPS server plan that we offer and everything will be set up within 1 hour, so you're able to start using your VPS right away. We provide two different versions since certain pieces of software have particular requirements in order to work effectively. You're able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a world wide web interface and all of the software that is needed for your sites will be pre-installed; while when you order it with no Control Panel, you will get only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, which means that you will be able to install other software using Secure Shell. When you decide to add our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our admins will monitor your server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You can acquire Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages, considering that we provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. In this way, you're able to choose the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of apps which you'd like to install and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control over the software environment. We will set up just the Apache web server software, so you will be able to add anything else you'll need, even when it is not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You can control everything using a console, yet if you want, you may also install a hosting Control Panel, as long as it supports Ubuntu. If you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your OS up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the newest software packages for a reliable and protected server environment.
