Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux editions for personal computers, however the OS also has a server release, which has been becoming more popular recently. Ubuntu is really quick and supports numerous hardware components, so it can run on pretty much any kind of computer not consuming an excessive amount of system resources. The OS is widely known as very reliable and secure, plus due to its popularity, you will find lots of sources online with information about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, so you can get security patches without having to worry about softwaretroubles over time. Since Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you're able to modify both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and install in any way you find fit, without any restrictions and without any license fees. This way, you can acquire an effective, secure and powerful hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We provide Ubuntu with our VPS servers and depending on what system requirements your web applications have, you are able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with only a couple of mouse clicks during the registration process. When you obtain your server with no website hosting Control Panel, the sole software that will be set up on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, thus you're able to use a console to gain access to the server and to create a software environment of your choice. When you get your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have an online interface with which you are able to manage almost everything as easily as you manage an ordinary shared account and all the required MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, however the root access to the server is restricted. In case you don't have a lot experience, or in case you do not plan to waste time on VPS control procedures, you're able to take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, that includes regular Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You're able to obtain Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages, considering that we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. In this way, you will be able to select the more appropriate of them, depending on the type of apps which you wish to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control of the software environment. We'll install only the Apache web server software, so you will be able to add anything else you need, even when it's not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You can control everything from a console, yet if you would like, you can also install a website hosting Control Panel, provided that it is compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your OS up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the newest software packages for a reliable and secure server environment.
