Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting really popular too. The main reason is that the OS is amazingly light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you will find plenty of resources online. One of the basic advantages of this OS is that it contains tens of thousands of software packages that can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the applications which you'd like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

We offer Ubuntu with all of our VPS hosting packages and depending on what requirements your web applications have, you'll be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with just a couple of clicks during the order process. When you get your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software that will be set up in addition to Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to build a software environment of your liking. If you order your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll have a world wide web interface with which you will be able to manage almost everything as easily as you control a standard shared account and all the vital MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, yet the root access to the server is restricted. If you do not have a lot experience, or in case you do not wish to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you are able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that features once a week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you will find on our registration page when you decide to get one of our dedicated web hosting. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, so as to satisfy the system requirements of the apps which you wish to set up on the server. You may also choose the software which will operate on your machine, because we will set up only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom software of your choice. You are able to install the latter without problems using a Secure Shell console, as you'll get root-level access and you'll get full control of your server. You are free to install a website hosting Control Panel too and manage some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, includes Operating System updates.
