Ubuntu is a really popular Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it's used primarily on desktop machines, its server version has been becoming more popular lately as well. Ubuntu is one of the lightest Linux distributions you can get and it supports almost any kind of hardware, which makes it a universal Operating System. It's also very stable and secure and has an at least a 5-year support life cycle, so you will be able to receive official protection and performance updates. Unlike various other Operating Systems, Ubuntu is distributed devoid of license fees and you are able to customize its core, and any of the countless packages it contains, in any way you see fit. This will allow you to set up the ideal software environment for your web applications regardless of their specifications. As a result of the popularity of the Operating System, Ubuntu has vast developer and user communities, so you will always find a lot of materials online about any question or problem that you might have.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each VPS server plan that we provide and everything will be set up within 1 hour, therefore you are able to start using your VPS without delay. We provide two separate editions because some programs have specific requirements so as to operate properly. You can control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll receive an online interface and the software which is needed for your websites will be pre-installed; while when you order it without any Control Panel, you'll receive only the OS and the Apache web server software, which means that you can set up other software employing Secure Shell. When you choose to include the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the registration process or at any later time, our admins will monitor your server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You can obtain Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages, as we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. In this way, you will be able to choose the more appropriate of them, based on the type of applications that you need to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control of the software environment. We will install just the Apache web server software, so you can add everything else you need, even when it's not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You're able to control everything using a console, but if you would like, you can also set up a web hosting Control Panel, when it's compatible with Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll maintain your OS up-to-date on a weekly basis and will ensure that you have the most recent software packages for a stable and protected server environment.
