Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a protected and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll find a number of resources on the Internet. Among the main advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it has thousands of software packages which can be freely modified according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps that you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

We offer Ubuntu with our Linux VPS hosting and based on what system requirements your web apps have, you will be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with only a few clicks throughout the order process. If you order your server without a hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software that will be set up along with Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you can use a console to gain access to the website hosting server and to set up a software environment that you choose. If you acquire your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you will be able to manage almost everything just as easily as you manage a regular shared account and all the important MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, however the root access to the server is restricted. If you don't have a lot of experience, or in case you do not wish to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you are able to take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which features weekly Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

When the applications that you would like to run require Ubuntu as well as lots of resources, you can opt for our dedicated web hosting and add this OS to your order with a single click. You will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of the OS, according to which edition your applications need to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Due to the fact that you will have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on the machine and you will be able to set up anything you'd like.
