Ubuntu is one of the most widespread Linux versions for desktop machines, but the Operating System also has a server edition, that has been gaining popularity lately. Ubuntu is really quick and supports a number of hardware components, so it can function on pretty much every server not consuming a lot of system resources. The OS is widely known as very reliable and secure, not to mention that as a result of its popularity, you will find lots of sources online with info about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, so you'll be able to get security patches without worrying about softwareproblems over time. Due to the fact that Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you're able to modify both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and install in any way you find fit, without any limitations and without paying any license fees. This way, you will get a quick, stable and powerful web hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We provide Ubuntu with all our VPS plans and based on what system requirements your web apps have, you're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with only a few mouse clicks throughout the order process. When you get your server with no hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be set up along with Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to use a console in order to access the server and to set up a software environment that you choose. When you obtain your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have a world wide web interface with which you are able to manage almost everything as quickly as you control a standard shared account and all necessary MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, but the root access to your server will be limited. If you don't have a lot experience, or if you don't wish to waste time on VPS management procedures, you are able to reap the benefits of the Managed Services upgrade, that includes once a week Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
If the applications that you would like to run require Ubuntu as well as a lot of system resources, you can choose our dedicated web hosting plans and add this OS to your order with a single click. You can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS, based on which release your apps need to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Due to the fact that you will have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on your machine and you will be able to set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not feature a website hosting Control Panel, therefore you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, yet if you'd like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to control your websites. If you don't want to lose time taking care of your web hosting server, you can use our Managed Services package, which includes lots of tasks performed by our system administrators on your behalf. The upgrade comes with routine updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
