Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting pretty popular too. The reason is that the OS is extremely light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and stable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll discover a number of resources on the Internet. Among the key advantages of this OS is the fact that it features thousands of software packages which can be freely modified according to your needs and the requirements of the applications that you intend 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 is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With all of our Linux VPS servers, you are able to decide on the Ubuntu Operating System from the order page. We recognize the fact that some programs have particular requirements in terms of the OS they can be installed on, and you're able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. In addition, you can choose whether your VPS should feature the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will find everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you will be able to make everything via your online browser, but the root access will be limited; while in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, which means that you are able to set up anything freely because of the full root access which you'll be given, but the server management tasks can be done through a console. Our sysadmins can watch your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu installation weekly when you add the optional Managed Services package which we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

If the apps that you would like to run require Ubuntu and lots of system resources, you can choose our dedicated servers and add this Operating System to your order with just a single click. You're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of your Operating System, based on which release your apps need in order to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Since you will have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on the machine and you will be able to install anything you'd like.
