Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular too. The reason is the fact that the operating system is amazingly light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources on the Internet. One of the major advantages of this OS is that it comes with tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely customized in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the applications that you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

Ubuntu is available with our Linux VPS hosting and you can buy a VPS running it in less than 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so you will be able to choose the one which you need if the software that you want to run on the hosting server has particular system requirements in this regard. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you will be able to install anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have a web interface and all necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of installation is more effective for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options which you will find on our registration page if you choose to obtain one of our Linux dedicated web hosting. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, so as to meet the system requirements of the applications which you wish to set up on the server. You may also select 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're able to install the latter without problems by using a Secure Shell console, since you will receive root-level access and you'll get full control of your hosting server. You are free to install a website hosting Control Panel as well and control some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, includes OS updates.
