Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is amazingly light and it can run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any kind of 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 features numerous software packages which can be easily adjusted according to your needs as well as the requirements of the apps that you intend to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each VPS server
plan that we offer and everything is set up within an hour, so you're able to start using your VPS without delay. We supply two separate editions due to the fact that some pieces of software have particular requirements to function properly. You can control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get an online interface and the software that is required for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it with no Control Panel, you'll get only the OS and the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to set up other software employing Secure Shell. When you choose to add our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep close track of your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
When the apps that you want to run require Ubuntu and lots of resources, you can select our Linux dedicated servers
and add this OS to your order with a click. You will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the Operating System, based on which release your apps need to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. As you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on the machine and you'll be able to set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not come with a website hosting Control Panel, so you can manage your content using a Secure Shell console, however if you want, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your web sites. If you do not want to lose time controlling your web hosting server, you can take advantage of the Managed Services package, that includes plenty of tasks done by our admins on your behalf. The package includes routine updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
