Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is extremely light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll find a number of resources on the web. One of the main benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it comes with a great number of software packages which can be easily modified according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications that you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS
With all of our Linux VPS packages, you're able to pick the Ubuntu OS from the order page. We are aware of the fact that some pieces of software have certain requirements with regard to the OS they are installed on, which means that you are able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. Also, you can select whether the VPS should feature our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will find everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you are able to make everything through your web browser, however the root access will be restricted; while in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, which means that you'll be able to set up anything freely thanks to the full root access which you will be given, yet the server management tasks can be performed from a console. Our system administrators can keep track of your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis when you add the optional Managed Services package which we offer.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
You can get Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans, due to the fact that we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. Thus, you'll be able to pick the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of applications that you wish to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control over the software setting. We'll set up only the Apache web server software, so you are able to add anything else you may need, even when it's not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You will be able to control everything from a console, however if you want, you can also set up a web hosting Control Panel, as long as it's 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 up-to-date software packages for a stable and protected server environment.
