Ubuntu is among the most popular Linux releases for desktop machines, but the OS also has a server release, which has been gaining popularity recently. Ubuntu is really quick and supports a wide range of hardware components, so it can work on pretty much every server not using an excessive amount of system resources. The Operating System is considered to be pretty dependable and secure, plus because of its popularity, you'll find many different sources online with information about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, so you will be able to get security patches without worrying about softwareissues in the long term. As Ubuntu is free to use, you're able to customize both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and install in any way you find fit, without any limitations and without having to pay any license fees. In this way, you'll get an effective, stable and powerful website hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With any of our VPS servers, you're able to decide on the Ubuntu OS from the order page. We're aware of the fact that some programs have particular requirements in terms of the OS they can be set up on, and you can select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. Also, you can select if your VPS should include our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll have everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you are able to do everything through your Internet browser, but the root access is limited; while in the second case, you will get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so that you can install anything freely thanks to the full root access which you will be given, but the server management tasks will be done using a console. Our sysadmins will watch your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis if you add the additional Managed Services package that we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We offer Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with just a click on the registration page. We provide two releases, so as to make sure that the server matches the requirements of the software that you'd like to install. The full root accessibility to the server will help you set up various other software, because the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You can access the server securely from a console, yet if you like better to use a world wide web interface, you're free to set up any kind of Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to focus your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you'll be able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will handle a variety of tasks for you, which includes weekly OS updates.
