Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting really popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will find plenty of resources on the web. Among the major benefits of this Operating System is that it has thousands of software packages that can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications which you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We provide Ubuntu with our VPS servers and depending on what system requirements your web applications have, you are able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with only a few mouse clicks throughout the registration process. When you order your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the only software which will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, therefore you can use a console to access the hosting server and to install a software environment that you choose. If you order your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have an online interface with which you are able to control almost everything as quickly as you manage a regular shared account and all the vital MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to the server is restricted. If you don't have much experience, or in case you do not wish to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you can reap the benefits of our Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
When the apps that you need to run require Ubuntu as well as lots of system resources, you can opt for our dedicated servers and add this OS to your order with a single click. You can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of the OS, depending on which edition your applications need in order to function properly and to get the most of the server hardware. Since you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on your machine and you'll be able to set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not contain a website hosting Control Panel, and you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, but if you would like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your websites. In case you do not want to lose time supervising your hosting server, you can take advantage of our Managed Services package, which includes a lot of tasks done by our system administrators on your behalf. The upgrade features regular updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
