Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting really popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it will run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely 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 secure and stable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you will find numerous resources on the Internet. One of the main benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it features numerous software packages that can be freely changed according to your needs and the needs of the apps that you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with each and every virtual private server package that we offer and everything is set up within one hour, so you're able to start using your VPS without delay. We offer two separate versions since some pieces of software have certain requirements so as to function properly. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface and all the software that is necessary for your websites will be pre-installed; while in case you order it without any Control Panel, you'll get just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so that you will be able to set up additional software employing Secure Shell. When you choose to add our Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep an eye on your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

We offer Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with only a click on the order page. We offer two versions, to make sure that the hosting server meets the system requirements of the software that you would like to set up. The full root accessibility to the server allows you to install various other software, as the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You are able to access the server safely from a console, however in case you like better to use an online interface, you're free to set up any Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to focus your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you can add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle plenty of tasks for you, which includes once a week OS updates.
