Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting very popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will find lots of resources online. Among the key advantages of this OS is the fact that it contains numerous software packages that can be easily customized according to your needs and the needs of the applications that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

We offer Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS and depending on what requirements your web apps have, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with just a few clicks during the order process. When you get your server without a web hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software which will be set up along with Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you are able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to build a software environment that you choose. When you get your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a world wide web interface with which you can control almost everything as easily as you control a standard shared account and all the important MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, however the root access to your server is limited. In case you don't have much experience, or if you don't plan to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you will be able to take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

We offer Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with only a click on the registration page. We supply two releases, to make sure that the server matches the system requirements of the software that you need to set up. The full root admission to the server allows you to set up any other software, because the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You're able to access the server safely from a console, yet in case you would like to use a web interface, you can install any kind of Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to focus your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you're able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will handle plenty of tasks for you, including regular Operating System updates.
