Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting quite popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a protected and dependable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll discover lots of resources on the web. Among the main benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it includes tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the applications which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you'll be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with each and every VPS server plan that we offer and everything will be set up within 60 minutes, which means that you are able to start using the VPS without delay. We provide two different versions since certain pieces of software have specific requirements in order to work properly. You can control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a world wide web interface and all the software that is required for your sites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it with no Control Panel, you will get just the OS and the Apache web server software, so that you'll be able to install other software employing Secure Shell. When you decide to include our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your server and will upgrade Ubuntu regularly.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We provide Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the registration page. We supply two versions, in order to guarantee that the hosting server will match the system requirements of the software that you want to install. The full root admission to your server allows you to set up any other software, because the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server safely from a console, yet in case you like better to use a web interface, you can set up any kind of Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you can add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle various tasks for you, including once a week OS upgrades.
