Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting pretty popular too. The reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all 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 the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover plenty of resources on the net. One of the main benefits of this Operating System is that it features a large number of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and the needs of the applications that you'd like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's 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're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each and every VPS server package that we offer and everything is set up within 60 minutes, so you are able to start using your VPS right away. We provide two different versions due to the fact that certain programs have specific requirements to operate properly. You are able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get an online interface and all the software that's necessary for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it without any Control Panel, you will receive only the OS and the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to set up additional 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 keep close track of your server and will upgrade Ubuntu regularly.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You can obtain Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages, as we provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. This way, you're able to pick the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of apps that you wish to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You will have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control of the software environment. We will install only the Apache web server software, therefore you are able to add anything else you'll need, even when it's not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You are able to manage everything from a console, yet if you would like, you can also set up a website hosting Control Panel, provided that it supports Ubuntu. When you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we'll maintain your OS up-to-date on a weekly basis and will ensure that you have the newest software packages for a reliable and protected server environment.
