Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting really popular as well. The main reason is that the operating system is really light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover a number of resources on the Internet. One of the main benefits of this OS is that it contains a large number of software packages which can be easily modified in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the apps which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any 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 Hosting

We offer Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS hosting services and based on what requirements your web apps have, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with only a few clicks throughout the order process. If you get your server with no website hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you will be able to use a console to gain access to the server and to create a software environment of your liking. If you acquire your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface with which you will be able to manage almost everything as quickly as you manage a regular shared account and all the important MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, however the root access to your server is limited. If you don't have a lot experience, or in case you do not wish to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you're able to take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which features once a week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

We offer Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with just a click on the registration page. We supply two editions, so as to ensure that the hosting server matches the system requirements of the software that you wish to set up. The full root accessibility to your server will enable you to install any other software, since the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You're able to access the server safely from a console, however in case you prefer to use a web interface, you are free to install any Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you can add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of a number of tasks for you, among them regular OS updates.
