Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting quite popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a protected and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources on the net. Among the basic advantages of this OS is that it contains a large number of software packages which can be easily modified according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you would like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

With any of our VPS hosting, you are able to choose the Ubuntu OS from the order page. We recognize the fact that some programs have particular requirements in terms of the OS they are set up on, which means that you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. You can also choose if your VPS should include our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will receive everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etcetera. software, and you will be able to make everything by using your Internet browser, yet the root access will be restricted; whereas in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so you're able to set up anything freely thanks to the full root access that you'll be given, yet the server management tasks can be done using a console. Our administrators can monitor your VPS and update the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis if you add the optional Managed Services bundle that we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

Ubuntu is among the OS options that you'll find on our registration page in case you want to obtain one of our Linux dedicated hosting services. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, to satisfy the system requirements of the applications that you need to install on the server. You can also choose the software which will operate on your machine, because we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom-made software that you choose. You're able to set up the latter without any problems through a Secure Shell console, since you will get root-level access and you'll have full control over your hosting server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel too and manage some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, comes with OS updates.
