Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting very popular too. The reason is that the OS is extremely light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll find lots of resources on the Internet. One of the major advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it contains thousands of software packages which can be easily changed according to your needs and the needs of the applications that you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each virtual private server package that we supply and everything is set up within 60 minutes, therefore you can start using your VPS right away. We supply two different versions due to the fact that certain programs have specific requirements to operate effectively. You can control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a world wide web interface and all the software which is needed for your sites will be pre-installed; while when you order it without any Control Panel, you'll receive only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you can set up additional software employing Secure Shell. When you decide to include the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep an eye on your server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can get Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages, considering that we supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. In this way, you can pick the more appropriate of them, based on the type of apps that you need to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control of the software setting. We will install only the Apache web server software, therefore you will be able to add whatever else you may need, even when it is not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You can manage everything using a console, but if you would like, you may also set up a website hosting Control Panel, as long as it's compatible with Ubuntu. If you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll maintain your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will make sure that you have the newest software packages for a reliable and secure server environment.
