Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting very popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is really light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you will have a protected and stable software environment on your server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will find plenty of resources on the web. One of the basic benefits of this OS is that it includes numerous software packages which can be easily modified in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the applications that you would 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 program code is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We provide Ubuntu with our Linux VPS service and based on what requirements your web applications have, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with just a couple of clicks during the order process. When you order your server with no website hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software that will be installed on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you're able to use a console to access the server and to create a software environment that you choose. If you get your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you'll be able to manage almost everything as easily as you manage a standard shared account and all essential MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, yet the root access to the server will be restricted. If you don't have a lot of experience, or in case you don't wish to waste time on VPS management procedures, you will be able to take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, that includes every week Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

You can get Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages, as we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. In this way, you'll be able to select the more appropriate of these two, based on the type of apps that you wish to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You will have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control over the software setting. We'll set up only the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to add everything else you need, even if it's not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You'll be able to manage everything using a console, yet if you would like, you can also set up a hosting Control Panel, when it is compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll maintain your OS up-to-date every week and will make sure that you have the most recent software packages for a reliable and risk-free server environment.
