Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will discover a number of resources on the web. Among the basic benefits of this OS is that it features numerous software packages which can be freely changed according to your needs and the needs of the apps that you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
With any of our VPS hosting, you are able to select the Ubuntu Operating System on the order page. We are aware of the fact that some programs have particular requirements in terms of the Operating System they are set up on, and you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. Also, you can choose if your VPS should come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with 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 via your web browser, yet the root access is restricted; whereas in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, so that you're able to set up anything freely due to the full root access which you will be given, but the server management tasks will be performed from a console. Our sysadmins can monitor your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis when you add the additional Managed Services package which we offer.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
You're able to get Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages, because we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System.

You'll have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control over the software setting. We will install just the Apache web server software, which means that you can add everything else you'll need, even if it is not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You'll be able to manage everything through a console, however if you want, you may also set up a web hosting Control Panel, on condition that it is compatible with Ubuntu.
