Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is really light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your server all of the time. Also, 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 will find numerous resources online. Among the key advantages of this Operating System is that it comes with thousands of software packages that can be easily customized according to your needs and the needs of the apps which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with our VPS servers and you can get a VPS running it in just 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so you can choose the one which you need when the software that you want to run on the website hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. 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 using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have a web interface and all the required web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of setup is more efficient for users with less experience. We will also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this during the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
If the apps that you need to run require Ubuntu and plenty of resources, you should opt for our dedicated web hosting plans and add this OS to your order with just a single click. You're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of your OS, depending on which edition your applications need in order to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Due to the fact that you will have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on the machine and you can install anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't come with a web hosting Control Panel, which means that you can manage your content through a Secure Shell console, but if you would like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to command your sites. If you do not want to lose time supervising the hosting server, you can use our Managed Services package, which includes numerous tasks performed by our system administrators on your behalf. The upgrade includes routine updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
