Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it can run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll discover lots of resources on the Internet. One of the major advantages of this OS is the fact that it comes with numerous software packages which can be easily modified according to your needs and the needs of the applications that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with our VPS servers and you can purchase a VPS running it in just 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so you can select the one which you need when the software that you would like to run on your hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you'll be able to set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you'll have an online interface and all required web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of installation is more efficient for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We provide Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with just a click on the order page. We offer two releases, to ensure that the hosting server matches the requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root accessibility to your server will help you set up any other software, because the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You can access the server safely from a console, yet if you would like to use a world wide web interface, you are free to set up any Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you will be able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle plenty of tasks for you, among them once a week Operating System upgrades.
