Ubuntu is one of the most widely used Linux releases for desktop computers, but the OS also has a server version, that has been gaining popularity nowadays. Ubuntu is really quick and supports numerous hardware components, so it can work on pretty much any kind of server without using too much system resources. The OS is considered to be very reliable and secure, plus as a result of its popularity, you'll find a number of sources online with information about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, so you'll be able to get security patches without worrying about softwaretroubles over time. As Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you'll be able to customize both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and set up in any way you see fit, without any restrictions and without any license fees. This way, you'll get an effective, secure and powerful hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With all of our Linux VPS service, you'll be able to pick the Ubuntu OS from the order page. We recognize the fact that some pieces of software have particular requirements in terms of the Operating System they can be installed on, so you'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. Also, 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'll get everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you'll be able to do everything via your Internet browser, yet the root access is limited; while in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, which means that you're able to install anything freely due to the full root access which you'll be given, yet the server management tasks can be performed using a console. Our sysadmins can watch your VPS and update the Ubuntu setup weekly when you add the optional Managed Services bundle which we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

You'll be able to obtain Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages, because we provide 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this OS. This way, you will be able to select the more appropriate of the two, based on the type of applications which you want to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the Operating System. You will have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control of the software environment. We'll install just the Apache web server software, therefore you will be able to add anything else you need, even when it's not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You're able to control everything from a console, yet if you would like, you can also set up a hosting Control Panel, provided that it's compatible with Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the newest software packages for a well-balanced and safe server environment.
