Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting very popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will find lots of resources online. One of the basic benefits of this OS is the fact that it contains a great number of software packages that can be freely changed according to your needs and the needs of the apps that you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each VPS server plan that we supply and everything will be set up within 1 hour, therefore you can start using your VPS right away. We offer two different versions due to the fact that certain pieces of software have certain requirements to function effectively. You can manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a world wide web interface and all of the software that's needed for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it without any Control Panel, you will receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, which means that you can install other software through Secure Shell. If you choose to add our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will monitor your server and will upgrade Ubuntu regularly.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to acquire Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages, considering that we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this OS. This way, you'll be able to pick 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'll have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control over the software environment. We will install only the Apache web server software, therefore you will be able to add everything else you will need, even if it's not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You can manage everything through a console, but if you want, you may also set up a web hosting Control Panel, as long as it is compatible with Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your Operating System up-to-date on a weekly basis and will make sure that you have the most recent software packages for a stable and risk-free server environment.
