Ubuntu is among the most widely used Linux versions for desktop machines, yet the Operating System also has a server release, that has been gaining popularity lately. Ubuntu is very quick and supports a number of hardware components, so it can run on pretty much every machine without using an excessive amount of resources. The OS is considered to be pretty dependable and secure, not to mention that because of its popularity, you'll find a number of sources online with info about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, so you're able to get security patches without worrying about softwareissues over time. Because Ubuntu is free to use, you'll be able to modify both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and install in any way you see fit, without any restrictions and without paying any license fees. This way, you'll get a rapid, dependable and powerful website hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with our VPS servers and you can get a VPS running it in less than 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so that you're able to choose the one which you need if the software that you would like to run on your web hosting server has specific system requirements in this regard. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed without a Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you can install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have a web interface and all the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of setup is more effective for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We offer Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the order page. We offer two versions, in order to guarantee that the hosting server meets the system requirements of the software that you wish to set up. The full root admission to your server will enable you to install any other software, because the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server securely from a console, but in case you would like to use a web interface, you are free to set up any Control Panel which can run 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 the Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of numerous tasks for you, including regular Operating System updates.
