Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it can function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll find numerous resources on the net. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is that it contains numerous software packages which can be easily customized according to your needs and / or the requirements of the applications which you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

With all of our Linux VPS, you can pick the Ubuntu OS on the order page. We are aware of the fact that some programs have certain requirements with regard to the Operating System they are installed on, and you can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. In addition, you can select if the VPS should include the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will receive everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you are able to do everything through your Internet browser, yet the root access is limited; while in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so you're able to install anything freely thanks to the full root access that you'll be given, however the server management tasks will be done from a console. Our sysadmins will monitor your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis when you add the additional Managed Services bundle which we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

You're able to obtain Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans, due to the fact that we provide 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this Operating System. Thus, you are able to select the more appropriate of the two, based on the type of apps that you want to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control of the software environment. We will set up only the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to add everything else you'll need, even when it is not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You'll be able to control everything through a console, yet if you want, you may also set up a website hosting Control Panel, as long as it is compatible with Ubuntu. When you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your OS up-to-date on a weekly basis and will make sure that you have the most recent software packages for a well-balanced and protected server environment.
