Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting very popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is extremely light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you will find lots of resources on the Internet. One of the main advantages of this OS is the fact that it has numerous software packages that can be easily modified in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the apps that you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at 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

We offer Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS hosting packages and depending on what system requirements your web apps have, you will be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with only a few mouse clicks during the order process. When you order your server without a hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software which will be installed along with Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, which means that you can use a console in order to access the hosting server and to create a software environment of your liking. When you obtain your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you'll be able to manage almost everything as quickly as you manage an ordinary shared account and all the essential MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to your server will be limited. If you don't have a lot experience, or if you do not plan to waste time on VPS control procedures, you'll be able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which includes regular Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

We supply Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with just a click on the order page. We provide two editions, so as to ensure that the hosting server meets the system requirements of the software that you want to set up. The full root accessibility to the server allows you to install any other software, as the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You can access the server securely through a console, yet if you would like to use an online interface, you can install any Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you would like to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you are able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle a variety of tasks for you, which includes once a week OS updates.
