Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you should have a secure and dependable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will find lots of resources on the Internet. One of the key benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it includes a large number of software packages that can be easily adjusted according to your needs and / or the needs of the applications that you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each and every VPS server plan that we offer and everything is set up within 1 hour, which means that you're able to start using the VPS right away. We offer two separate versions due to the fact that some programs have particular requirements so as to function effectively. You are able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a world wide web interface and all of the software which is needed for your websites will be pre-installed; while in case you order it devoid of Control Panel, you will receive just the OS and the Apache web server software, so you will be able to set up other software through Secure Shell. When you decide to add the Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your server and will update Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We supply Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with just a click on the registration page. We supply two editions, in order to make sure that the server will meet the system requirements of the software that you need to set up. The full root accessibility to your server will allow you to install any other software, since the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You can access the server safely through a console, yet in case you like better to use a web interface, you're free to install any kind of Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to focus your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you are able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of plenty of tasks for you, including once a week OS updates.
