Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting really popular too. The main reason is that the OS is very light and it'll run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a protected and dependable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will discover a number of resources on the net. One of the major advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it contains numerous software packages which can be freely changed 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 kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
We supply Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS web hosting and based on what system requirements your web apps have, you can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with just a few mouse clicks throughout the registration process. If you order your server with no hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software that will be installed on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to create a software environment that you choose. If you get your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you can control almost everything as easily as you manage a regular shared account and all the required MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to your server will be restricted. When you don't have a lot experience, or if you do not like to waste time on VPS management procedures, you'll be able to take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If the applications that you would like to run require Ubuntu and a lot of resources, you should select our Linux dedicated servers hosting and add this OS to your order with a single click. You're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of your OS, depending on which release your applications need to function properly and to get the most of the server hardware. Due to the fact that you'll have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on the machine and you will be able to set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not feature a website hosting Control Panel, so you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, however if you want, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to take care of your Internet sites. When you don't want to lose time supervising the server, you can use the Managed Services package, that includes countless tasks done by our sysadmins on your behalf. The upgrade includes routine updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
