Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting quite popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it will function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. 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 secure and stable software environment on your hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will discover lots of resources on the web. One of the key benefits of this Operating System is that it comes with a large number of software packages which can be freely modified according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with each virtual private server plan that we offer and everything is set up within 60 minutes, therefore you will be able to start using your VPS without delay. We provide two different versions because certain programs have particular requirements so as to work properly. You are able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get an online interface and all the software that's needed for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it without any Control Panel, you'll receive just the OS and the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to install additional software using Secure Shell. If you decide to include the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep an eye on your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

We supply Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the registration page. We offer two editions, to make sure that the hosting server matches the requirements of the software that you need to set up. The full root access to the server will allow you to set up any other software, because the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server safely through a console, but in case you like better to use a web interface, you are free to set up any Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you want to focus your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you will be able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of numerous tasks for you, among them regular OS upgrades.
