Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is very light and it'll run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll find numerous resources on the web. One of the major benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it features numerous software packages which can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the apps which you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
With all of our VPS hosting service, you're able to decide on the Ubuntu OS from the order page. We are aware of the fact that some pieces of software have certain requirements in terms of the OS they can be installed on, which means that you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. In addition, you can choose whether your VPS should include the Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll find everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to do everything from your Internet browser, however the root access will be restricted; whereas in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, so you are able to install anything freely because of the full root access that you will be given, but the server management tasks are performed through a console. Our system administrators will watch your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis if you add the optional Managed Services bundle which we offer.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
When the apps that you want to run require Ubuntu and plenty of resources, you should select one of our Linux dedicated servers and add this OS to your order with just a single click. You are able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of your OS, based on which edition your apps need to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Since you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on your machine and you will be able to install anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not come with a hosting Control Panel, which means that you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, but if you want, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your sites. When you do not want to lose time supervising your web hosting server, you can use the Managed Services package, that includes numerous tasks done by our system administrators on your behalf. The package comes with regular updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
