Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting very popular as well. The reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll find numerous resources on the web. Among the basic advantages of this OS is the fact that it has a large number of software packages that can be easily customized in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the apps that 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 code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

Ubuntu is available with our Linux VPS packages and you can buy a VPS running it in less than 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so that you are able to choose the one that you need if the software that you wish to run on your website hosting server has particular system requirements in this regard. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you can set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have an online interface and all the required web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but such a installation is more suitable for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

You are able to get Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages, due to the fact that we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. In this way, you can choose the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of apps which you need to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the Operating System. You will have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control of the software setting. We will set up only the Apache web server software, so you are able to add anything else you need, even if it is not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You will be able to control everything from a console, yet if you want, you can also set up a hosting Control Panel, provided that it's compatible with Ubuntu. If you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your OS up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a reliable and risk-free server environment.
