Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is extremely light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will discover plenty of resources online. One of the key advantages of this OS is that it features numerous software packages which can be freely adjusted according to your needs and / or the requirements of the applications which you intend to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

We offer Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS web hosting and depending on what requirements your web applications have, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with only a few mouse clicks during the order process. If you order your server with no web hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be set up on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you will be able to use a console to gain access to the hosting server and to build a software environment that you choose. If you obtain your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface with which you're able to control almost everything just as easily as you manage a standard shared account and all the required MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, but the root access to the server will be restricted. When you don't have much experience, or if you do not wish to waste time on VPS management procedures, you will be able to take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, that includes once a week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

We supply Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with just a click on the order page. We provide two versions, so as to ensure that the server meets the requirements of the software that you would like to install. The full root access to your server will help you set up various other software, because the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You are able to access the server safely through a console, but if you would like to use a web interface, you can set up any Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you need to focus your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you will be able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of a variety of tasks for you, which includes weekly Operating System upgrades.
