Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular too. The reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it'll run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll find lots of resources online. Among the basic benefits of this OS is that it includes a large number of software packages that can be easily customized according to your needs and the needs of the applications which you intend to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each VPS server package that we provide and everything is set up within one hour, so you can start using your VPS right away. We provide two different versions since some programs have certain requirements in order to operate properly. You are able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a world wide web interface and all the software that is necessary for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; while when you order it without any Control Panel, you will get just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so that you will be able to install other software using Secure Shell. If you choose to add our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will monitor your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu regularly.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We provide Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the order page. We offer two versions, to ensure that the server meets the system requirements of the software that you need to set up. The full root accessibility to the server will enable you to set up various other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You are able to access the server safely through a console, but if you prefer to use a world wide web interface, you're free to install any Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you need to focus your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you are able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of a variety of tasks for you, among them weekly OS updates.
