Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting quite popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it will run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will discover plenty of resources on the Internet. One of the key advantages of this Operating System is that it features a large number of software packages that can be easily modified in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the applications that you'd like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each and every VPS server plan that we supply and everything will be set up within 60 minutes, therefore you'll be able to start using your VPS right away. We supply two different editions since some programs have particular requirements so as to operate effectively. You can control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface and all the software that is necessary for your web sites will be pre-installed; while when you order it without any Control Panel, you'll get just the OS and the Apache web server software, so that you will be able to install additional software using Secure Shell. If you choose to include our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep an eye on your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You are able to acquire Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans, considering that we supply 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this OS. Thus, you can select the more appropriate of them, depending on the type of applications which you'd like to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You will have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control of the software setting. We'll set up only the Apache web server software, so you will be able to add whatever else you may need, even when it is not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You're able to manage everything using a console, but if you want, you can also install a website hosting Control Panel, as long as it's compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your Operating System up-to-date on a weekly basis and will make sure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a stable and protected server environment.
