Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting pretty popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it will function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you will find numerous resources online. Among the basic advantages of this Operating System is that it has tens of thousands of software packages that can be freely customized in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the apps that you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of 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 will be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each VPS server plan that we provide and everything is set up within one hour, which means that you'll be able to start using the VPS right away. We supply two separate versions because certain programs have specific requirements so as to function effectively. You're able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface and the software that is needed for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; while when you order it without any Control Panel, you will get only the OS and the Apache web server software, so that you'll be able to set up additional software through Secure Shell. When you choose to add the Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep an eye on your server and will upgrade Ubuntu regularly.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you'll find on our order page if you want to get one of our Linux dedicated servers. We'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, to meet the system requirements of the applications that you wish to set up on the server. You may also select the software which will run on your machine, because we will install only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be custom software that you choose. You will be able to set up the latter without problems employing a Secure Shell console, since you'll have root-level access and you'll get full control over the server. You can set up a web hosting Control Panel as well and manage some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, comes with Operating System updates.
