Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it can run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll find a number of resources on the web. Among the main advantages of this Operating System is that it features a large number of software packages which can be easily modified in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the apps that you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

We supply Ubuntu with our VPS and depending on what system requirements your web apps have, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with just a couple of clicks during the order process. If you get your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be set up along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, thus you will be able to use a console to access the hosting server and to create a software environment of your liking. If you get your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you are able to manage almost everything as quickly as you manage a standard shared account and all the important MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, however the root access to your server is restricted. If you do not have much experience, or in case you do not like to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you can take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

We provide Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with only a click on the registration page. We provide two editions, to ensure that the server will match the system requirements of the software that you'd like to install. The full root access to the server allows you to set up any other software, because the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server securely using a console, but if you would like to use a web interface, you are free to set up any Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you want to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you are able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will handle various tasks for you, which includes weekly OS updates.
