Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting quite popular as well. The reason is that the OS is really light and it'll function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll discover numerous resources on the net. Among the major advantages of this Operating System is that it includes a large number of software packages which can be freely changed 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 license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

We supply Ubuntu with our VPS and based on what requirements your web applications have, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with just a couple of mouse clicks during the registration process. When you obtain your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software which will be installed on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to use a console in order to access the server and to create a software environment of your choice. When you get your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you will be able to control almost everything as easily as you manage a regular shared account and all the vital MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to your server is restricted. If you don't have much experience, or in case you do not like to waste time on VPS management procedures, you're able to take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, that includes once a week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

We offer Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the order page. We offer two releases, in order to ensure that the server meets the requirements of the software that you'd like to set up. The full root access to the server will allow you to install any other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server safely from a console, but in case you prefer to use a world wide web interface, you can set up any kind of Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you would like to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle a number of tasks for you, including once a week Operating System updates.
