Ubuntu - the Linux Distribution which began small and is now one of the most common OSes in existence. Read more about its pros and cons.
Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting pretty popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it'll run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the 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 web hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will discover a number of resources on the net. Among the major benefits of this OS is the fact that it has a great number of software packages that can be freely changed in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the apps that you'd like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS
If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each and every virtual private server
package that we supply and everything will be set up within an hour, therefore you'll be able to start using your VPS without delay. We supply two different versions since certain pieces of software have certain requirements so as to function properly. You're able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a world wide web interface and the software that is needed for your sites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it devoid of Control Panel, you will get just the OS and the Apache web server software, so that you can install additional software employing Secure Shell. If you decide to add the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep an eye on your server and will update Ubuntu regularly.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options which you'll find on our registration page if you choose to acquire one of our Linux dedicated hosting
. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, so as to satisfy the system requirements of the apps which you wish to install on the server. You may also select the software which will run on your machine, as we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom-made software of your choice. You are able to set up the latter without any problems from a Secure Shell console, because you will get root-level access and you will have full control over the server. You are free to install a hosting Control Panel too and manage some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, includes OS updates.
