Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting really popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it can run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will find numerous resources online. Among the key advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it contains thousands of software packages that can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the apps which you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each and every VPS server plan that we provide and everything is set up within 1 hour, so you can start using the VPS right away. We supply two different editions since certain programs have certain requirements to operate efficiently. You are able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface and all the software that's required for your sites will be pre-installed; while if you order it with no Control Panel, you will get only the OS and the Apache web server software, so you can install other software using Secure Shell. If you choose to include the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You are able to get Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans, because we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this OS. Thus, you can choose the more appropriate of them, based on the type of apps that you wish to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control of the software setting. We will install just the Apache web server software, therefore you can add anything else you will need, even when it's not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You're able to manage everything through a console, but if you would like, you can also set up a hosting Control Panel, when it is compatible with Ubuntu. If you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your OS up-to-date every week and will ensure that you have the latest software packages for a stable and protected server environment.
