Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll discover a number of resources online. One of the main benefits of this OS is the fact that it comes with tens of thousands of software packages that can be easily adjusted according to your needs and the requirements of the applications that you intend to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
We offer Ubuntu with our Linux VPS web hosting
and based on what requirements your web apps have, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with only a few mouse clicks throughout the registration process. If you order your server without a web hosting Control Panel, the only software which will be set up on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you can use a console to gain access to the server and to build a software environment that you choose. When you get your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll have an online interface with which you are able to control almost everything as easily as you manage an ordinary shared account and all of the important MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, but the root access to the server is limited. If you don't have a lot of experience, or in case you don't plan to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you can take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, that features regular Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When the applications that you wish to run require Ubuntu and plenty of system resources, you should choose one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting
and add this Operating System to your order with just a single click. You are able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of your OS, depending on which release your apps need to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware. As you will have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on the machine and you'll be able to set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not come with a hosting Control Panel, which means that you can manage your content through a Secure Shell console, however if you would like, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to take care of your sites. If you don't want to lose time managing the web hosting server, you can employ our Managed Services package, that includes a number of tasks performed by our sysadmins on your behalf. The upgrade comes with routine updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
