Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting very popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will find plenty of resources on the web. One of the basic benefits of this Operating System is that it contains tens of thousands of software packages that can be freely adjusted in accordance with your needs and the needs of the apps that you would like to run, not to mention that you won't 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 Hosting

With any of our Linux VPS hosting packages, you will be able to select the Ubuntu Operating System on the order page. We are aware of the fact that some pieces of software have certain requirements with regard to the OS they are set up on, so you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. In addition, you can select if the VPS should come with our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will receive everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to make everything through your online browser, however the root access is restricted; while in the second case, you will get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so you are able to install anything freely thanks to the full root access that you will be given, however the server management tasks can be done using a console. Our system administrators will monitor your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis when you add the additional Managed Services bundle that we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

When the apps that you need to run require Ubuntu as well as lots of system resources, you should choose our Linux dedicated web hosting and add this Operating System to your order with a single click. You'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of your Operating System, according to which edition your apps need to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware.
