Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting quite popular too. The reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you will have a safe and stable software environment on your server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll find numerous resources on the web. One of the key benefits of this Operating System is that it features a great number of software packages which can be freely customized according to your needs and the requirements of the applications that you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

We offer Ubuntu with our VPS and depending on what system requirements your web applications have, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with just a couple of clicks throughout the order process. When you order your server without a web hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to create a software environment that you choose. When you order your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you can manage almost everything as quickly as you manage a standard shared account and all necessary MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, however the root access to the server is restricted. If you do not have a lot of experience, or in case you do not wish to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you will be able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that features every week Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

When the apps that you need to run require Ubuntu and a lot of resources, you can select our dedicated hosting and add this OS to your order with a single click. You are able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of your Operating System, according to which edition your apps need to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware. As you will have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on the machine and you can set up anything you'd like.
