Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting very popular too. The reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it will run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really 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 risk-free and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll discover numerous resources on the web. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is that it includes thousands of software packages that can be easily changed in accordance with your needs and the needs of the applications which you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
With any of our Linux VPS web hosting packages
, you'll be able to pick the Ubuntu Operating System on the order page. We recognize the fact that some programs have certain requirements with regard to the OS they're installed on, which means that you will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. You can also choose if your VPS should come with our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll find everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you'll be able to make everything via your Internet browser, but the root access is limited; while in the second case, you will get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so that you are able to set up anything freely due to the full root access which you will be given, but the server management tasks will be done using a console. Our system administrators can monitor your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis when you add the additional Managed Services bundle that we offer.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
We offer Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server
plans and if you need this Operating System, you're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the order page. We supply two releases, so as to ensure that the hosting server matches the requirements of the software that you need to set up. The full root accessibility to your server allows you to install various other software, because the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You can access the server safely from a console, yet in case you would like to use an online interface, you can set up any Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you want to focus your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of numerous tasks for you, including weekly OS updates.
