Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting very popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is extremely light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will find lots of resources on the web. One of the main benefits of this Operating System is that it contains a great number of software packages that can be freely modified according to your needs and / or the requirements of the applications that you intend to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with each VPS server
package that we offer and everything will be set up within one hour, therefore you can start using your VPS without delay. We provide two different versions due to the fact that certain programs have specific requirements in order to function efficiently. You'll be able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a world wide web interface and all the software which is required for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it devoid of Control Panel, you'll receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you are able to install additional software employing Secure Shell. If you decide to add the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep track of your server and will update Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to get Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server
plans, since we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this OS. Thus, you will be able to pick the more appropriate of them, based on the type of apps which you want to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You'll 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, therefore you'll be able to add whatever else you may need, even when it's not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You're able to control everything through a console, however if you want, you can also install a web hosting Control Panel, provided that it's compatible with Ubuntu. If you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we'll maintain your OS up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the newest software packages for a stable and safe server environment.
