Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting quite popular too. The reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it'll run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a protected and dependable software environment on your server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll discover lots of resources on the net. Among the main benefits of this OS is the fact that it features thousands of software packages that can be freely adjusted according to your needs and the needs of the applications that you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS servers and you can purchase a VPS running it in just one hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so you are able to pick the one which you need when the software that you wish to run on the hosting server has particular system requirements in this regard. You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you will be able to set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have a world wide web interface and all the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of setup is more effective for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so throughout the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is among the OS options which you'll find on our order page if you want to get one of our dedicated service. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, to match the system requirements of the apps that you intend to set up on the server. You can also select the software that will operate on your machine, because we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be tailor-made software of your choice. You can install the latter without any problems through a Secure Shell console, because you'll get root-level access and you'll have full control over your hosting server. You are free to install a hosting Control Panel too and manage some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, features Operating System upgrades.
