Ubuntu is one of the most widespread Linux distributions for personal computers, yet the OS also has a server version, which has been becoming more popular recently. Ubuntu is really quick and supports various hardware components, so it can work on pretty much any server not consuming a lot of resources. The Operating System is widely known as very dependable and secure, not to mention that as a result of its popularity, you will find numerous sources online with information about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, so you'll be able to get security patches without worrying about softwareissues in the long term. Because Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you'll be able to customize both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and install in any way you see fit, with no restrictions and without any license fees. In this way, you'll receive a rapid, stable and powerful website hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
With any of our Linux VPS servers, you can decide on the Ubuntu Operating System on the order page. We recognize the fact that some programs have certain requirements with regard to the OS they are set up on, so you're able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. You can also choose if the VPS should include our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will find everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you can make everything from your online browser, yet the root access is limited; whereas in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so you can set up anything freely because of the full root access which you will be given, but the server management tasks can be performed from a console. Our sysadmins can keep track of your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu installation weekly if you add the optional Managed Services bundle which we offer.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
If the applications that you need to run require Ubuntu and plenty of resources, you can select our dedicated service and add this Operating System to your order with a single click. You're able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of your Operating System, depending on which release your applications need to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Since you will have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on your machine and you'll be able to install anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not come with a web hosting Control Panel, and you can manage your content through a Secure Shell console, but if you'd like, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to command your web sites. In case you don't want to lose time controlling the server, you can take full advantage of the Managed Services package, that features lots of tasks done by our sysadmins on your behalf. The package includes regular updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
