Ubuntu is one of the most widespread Linux distributions for desktop machines, yet the OS also has a server release, that has been becoming more popular these days. Ubuntu is really quick and supports a variety of hardware components, so it can work on virtually every server without using an excessive amount of system resources. The Operating System is considered to be really reliable and secure, plus due to its popularity, you'll find lots of sources online with info about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, so you're able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareproblems in the long term. Because Ubuntu is free to use, you will be able to modify both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and install in any way you find fit, without any restrictions and without paying any license fees. This way, you can acquire an effective, secure and powerful web hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with our Linux VPS servers and you can obtain a VPS running it in just 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so you'll be able to choose the one that you need when the software that you want 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 set up without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you will be able to install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have a world wide web interface and all the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but such a setup is more effective for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We provide Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with just a click on the registration page. We supply two releases, so as to ensure that the server will match the requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root access to the server will allow you to install various other software, because the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You can access the server securely through a console, yet if you like better to use a world wide web interface, you are free to set up any kind of 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're able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle numerous tasks for you, which includes weekly Operating System updates.
