Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux distributions for desktop computers, yet the Operating System also has a server edition, which has been becoming more popular recently. Ubuntu is extremely fast and supports a variety of hardware components, so it can run on virtually any server not consuming too much system resources. The OS is considered to be really reliable and secure, not to mention that due to its popularity, you will find lots of 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 will be able to get security patches without having to worry about softwaretroubles in the long term. Because Ubuntu is totally free to use, you are able to customize both its core and the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and set up in any way you see fit, with no limitations and without paying any license fees. In this way, you will obtain a fast, stable and powerful website hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We offer Ubuntu with all of our VPS servers and depending on what system requirements your web applications have, you are able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with only a few clicks throughout the order process. When you obtain your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software which will be installed in addition to Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you can use a console to gain access to the hosting server and to install a software environment that you choose. When you acquire your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you'll be able to control almost everything as easily as you control a regular shared account and all necessary MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, however the root access to your server is limited. If you do not have a lot of experience, or in case you do not like to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you can take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that features once a week Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to obtain Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages, considering that we provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. In this way, you are able to select the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of applications which you'd like to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control of the software environment. We'll set up just the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to add everything else you will need, even if it's not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You will be able to manage everything from a console, but if you want, you can also install a web hosting Control Panel, on condition that it supports Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your OS up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the latest software packages for a well-balanced and secure server environment.
