Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting very popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it'll run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a safe and stable software environment on your server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll find lots of resources on the net. One of the main benefits of this Operating System is that it comes with thousands of software packages which can be easily adjusted according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We provide Ubuntu with all of our VPS hosting plans and based on what requirements your web apps have, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with just a couple of mouse clicks during the registration process. If you order your server devoid of hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software which will be set up in addition to Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, thus you are able to use a console to access the server and to install a software environment that you choose. When you obtain your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you can manage almost everything as easily as you control an ordinary shared account and all the vital MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, yet the root access to the server will be restricted. In case you don't have a lot experience, or if you do not want to waste time on VPS management procedures, you are able to take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that features every week Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We provide Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with just a click on the order page. We supply two editions, in order to guarantee that the hosting server matches the requirements of the software that you would like to install. The full root access to the server will allow you to set up various other software, since the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You can access the server safely from a console, but if you like better to use an online interface, you are free to set up any kind of Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to focus your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will handle plenty of tasks for you, which includes weekly Operating System updates.
