Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting really popular too. The reason is that the OS is extremely light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will find a number of resources online. One of the major benefits of this OS is that it has a large number of software packages which can be freely adjusted according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications that you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. 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 any of our Linux VPS servers, you are able to decide on the Ubuntu Operating System from the order page. We're aware of the fact that some programs have specific requirements with regard to the Operating System they're set up on, and you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. Also, you can select whether the VPS should feature our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will receive everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to make everything by using your web browser, yet the root access is limited; whereas in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, so you're able to install anything freely thanks to the full root access that you'll be given, however the server management tasks are done from a console. Our system administrators can monitor your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis if you add the optional Managed Services package that we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

You can obtain Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans, since we provide 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this OS. This way, you'll be able to select the more appropriate of these two, based on the type of applications that you wish to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control of the software environment. We'll install only the Apache web server software, therefore you are able to add anything else you will need, even if it's not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You are able to manage everything through a console, but if you want, you may also install a web hosting Control Panel, as long as it's compatible with Ubuntu. If you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll maintain your Operating System up-to-date on a weekly basis and will ensure that you have the most recent software packages for a reliable and protected server environment.
