Ubuntu is among the most widely used Linux versions for personal computers, yet the Operating System also has a server version, that has been becoming more popular lately. Ubuntu is extremely fast and supports a variety of hardware components, so it can work on pretty much every server without consuming a lot of system resources. The OS is regarded as being really dependable and secure, not to mention that as a result of its popularity, you will find numerous sources online with information about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, so you can get security patches without having to worry about softwareproblems in the long term. As Ubuntu is free to use, you can customize both its core and the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and install in any way you see fit, devoid of limitations and without having to pay any license fees. This way, you'll obtain an effective, stable and powerful web hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS
With all of our VPS
, you'll be able to select the Ubuntu OS on the order page. We are aware of the fact that some programs have particular requirements in terms of the Operating System they're installed on, so you will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. Also, you can select if your VPS should feature our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll have everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you will be able to make everything via your web browser, however the root access will be limited; while in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, so you can set up anything freely thanks to the full root access that you will be given, but the server management tasks will be performed using a console. Our administrators will watch your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis if you add the additional Managed Services package which we offer.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
If the applications that you wish to run require Ubuntu and a lot of resources, you can select one of our dedicated hosting services
and add this OS to your order with a click. You are able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of the OS, depending on which edition your apps need to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. As you will have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on the machine and you'll be able to set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not feature a website hosting Control Panel, which means that you can manage your content through a Secure Shell console, but if you would like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your web sites. If you do not want to lose time maintaining the server, you can take advantage of our Managed Services package, that includes plenty of tasks performed by our admins on your behalf. The package comes with regular updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
