Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting really popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is really light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you will have a protected and stable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll discover lots of resources online. Among the key advantages of this Operating System is that it has a large number of software packages which can be easily modified according to your needs as well as the requirements of the applications which you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We provide Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS servers and based on what system requirements your web applications have, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with just a few mouse clicks throughout the order process. When you get your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software which will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, therefore you are able to use a console in order to access the website hosting server and to install a software environment of your liking. When you obtain your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface with which you will be able to control almost everything just as easily as you control a standard shared account and all important MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, but the root access to your server is restricted. When you don't have a lot experience, or if you do not want to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you're able to take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, that includes once a week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to get Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans, since we supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this OS. In this way, you can pick the more appropriate of the two, depending on the type of apps that you'd like to install and run and on the system requirements they have regarding 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, therefore you're able to add anything else you may need, even if it's not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You can manage everything through a console, however if you would like, you may also set up a website hosting Control Panel, on condition that it is compatible with Ubuntu. If you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll maintain your OS up-to-date on a weekly basis and will make sure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a well-balanced and risk-free server environment.
