Ubuntu is among the most popular Linux distributions for desktop machines, but the OS also has a server edition, which has been gaining in popularity nowadays. Ubuntu is extremely fast and supports a variety of hardware components, so it can work on pretty much every machine not using an excessive amount of resources. The Operating System is widely known as very reliable and secure, not to mention that because of its popularity, you'll find quite a lot of sources online with info about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, so you're able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareproblems in the long term. Since Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you'll be able to modify both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and install in any way you see fit, devoid of limitations and without any license fees. In this way, you can get an effective, secure and powerful hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with all of our Linux VPS servers and you can buy a VPS running it in less than 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, which means that you can pick the one that you need when the software that you want to run on the website hosting server has particular system requirements in this regard. You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you will be able to set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have an online interface and all necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etcetera. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of installation is more efficient for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this during the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you'll find on our order page if you choose to acquire one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, to match the system requirements of the apps which you would like to set up on the server. You can also select the software which will run on your machine, because we will install only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom-made software that you choose. You're able to set up the latter without problems by using a Secure Shell console, because you will get root-level access and you will get full control over your hosting server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel too and control some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features Operating System upgrades.
