Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting pretty popular too. The reason is that the OS is really light and it'll function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will discover plenty of resources online. Among the key benefits of this OS is the fact that it features tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely customized according to your needs and / or the requirements of the apps which you'd like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS
We supply Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS packages and based on what system requirements your web apps have, you will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with just a few clicks during the registration process. If you order your server devoid of hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be set up along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, thus you'll be able to use a console to access the hosting server and to create a software environment of your choice. When you get your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have a world wide web interface with which you're able to control almost everything just as easily as you control a regular shared account and all required MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, but the root access to the server will be limited. If you don't have much experience, or if you don't want to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you will be able to take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, that features once a week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
You can obtain Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans, because we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this OS. In this way, you will be able to choose the more appropriate of the two, based on the type of apps that you want 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 over the software setting. We will install just the Apache web server software, therefore you are able to add whatever else you may need, even if it's not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You'll be able to control everything through a console, but if you would like, you can also set up a web hosting Control Panel, on condition that it's compatible with Ubuntu. If you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your Operating System up-to-date on a weekly basis and will ensure that you have the most recent software packages for a reliable and risk-free server environment.
