Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting really popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it'll run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will find lots of resources online. One of the basic advantages of this OS is the fact that it comes with numerous software packages which can be freely changed according to your needs and / or the requirements of the apps which you would 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 program code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

We offer Ubuntu with our VPS services and depending on what requirements your web apps have, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with just a few mouse clicks throughout the registration process. When you obtain your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software which will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you can use a console to access the server and to build a software environment that you choose. If you acquire your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you are able to control almost everything as easily as you control an ordinary shared account and all the vital MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, but the root access to your server is limited. In case you don't have a lot experience, or in case you don't like to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you are able to take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options which you'll find on our order page in case you choose to acquire one of our Linux dedicated hosting. We'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, to meet the system requirements of the apps which you intend to set up on the server. You can also choose the software that will run on your machine, since we will install only the Apache web server software, so all else can be tailor-made software of your liking. You are able to set up the latter without problems using a Secure Shell console, because you'll receive root-level access and you will get full control over the hosting server. You are free to set up a website hosting Control Panel too and manage some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features OS updates.
