Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting pretty popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it'll function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a secure and dependable software environment on your server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will find numerous resources on the web. One of the key benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it has numerous software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the apps which you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you are able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each VPS server package that we supply and everything is set up within an hour, which means that you'll be able to start using your VPS without delay. We provide two separate versions since certain programs have certain requirements in order to function effectively. You can manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a world wide web interface and the software that is needed for your websites will be pre-installed; while in case you order it with no Control Panel, you will receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so that you'll be able to set up additional software using Secure Shell. When you decide to add our Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will monitor your server and will update Ubuntu regularly.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We provide Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with just a click on the order page. We supply two versions, so as to make sure that the hosting server will match the system requirements of the software that you want to set up. The full root accessibility to your server will enable you to set up various other software, because the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You can access the server safely from a console, but in case you prefer to use an online interface, you can set up any kind of Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you want to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you're able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of a number of tasks for you, which includes weekly Operating System updates.
