Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting quite popular too. The reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it can run on almost any kind of 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) releases are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you will discover plenty of resources online. One of the main advantages of this OS is that it features numerous software packages which can be easily modified in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the applications that you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS hosting services and depending on what system requirements your web apps have, you'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with only a few mouse clicks throughout the order process. When you order your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be set up along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to use a console to access the website hosting server and to build a software environment of your choice. When you acquire your server with our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface with which you can manage almost everything as quickly as you control a regular shared account and all of the vital MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to the server will be restricted. If you don't have much experience, or if you do not wish to waste time on VPS management procedures, you will be able to reap the benefits of our Managed Services upgrade, that features every week Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
You're able to get Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages, considering that we offer 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this Operating System. In this way, you will be able to choose the more appropriate of them, based on the type of applications that you'd like to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control over the software environment. We will install just the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to add anything else you'll need, even if it's not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You will be able to control everything through a console, however if you would like, you may also set up a hosting Control Panel, provided that it is compatible with Ubuntu. When you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will make sure that you have the most recent software packages for a well-balanced and safe server environment.
