Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting pretty popular too. The main reason is that the OS is extremely light and it can run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and stable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll discover numerous resources on the web. One of the basic benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it contains a large number of software packages which can be easily adjusted according to your needs and / or the requirements of the applications which you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

We provide Ubuntu with our VPS hosting and depending on what system requirements your web apps have, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with just a couple of mouse clicks during the registration process. When you obtain your server devoid of website hosting Control Panel, the only software which will be installed in addition to Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you are able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to install a software environment of your liking. When you order your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you can manage almost everything just as easily as you control a standard shared account and all of the necessary MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to your server is limited. If you don't have a lot experience, or in case you don't plan to waste time on VPS management procedures, you're able to take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, which features regular Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can get Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages, considering that we provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. In this way, you're able to select the more appropriate of them, based on the type of apps which you'd like to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control over the software setting. We will install only the Apache web server software, so you are able to add whatever else you may need, even if it is not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You can control everything using a console, but if you would like, you can also set up a hosting Control Panel, provided that it's compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your Operating System up-to-date on a weekly basis and will ensure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a stable and risk-free server environment.
