Ubuntu - the Linux Distribution which began small and is currently among the most well-known Operating Systems in existence. Learn more about its pros and cons.
Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting very popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is really light and it can run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll find plenty of resources on the web. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it contains tens of thousands of software packages that can be freely adjusted in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you intend 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 code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you are able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each and every virtual private server
package that we supply and everything will be set up within one hour, which means that you'll be able to start using your VPS without delay. We provide two separate versions since some pieces of software have certain requirements in order to function efficiently. You will be able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface and the software that's necessary for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it without any Control Panel, you'll get only the OS and the Apache web server software, so you will be able to set up other software through Secure Shell. When you choose to add our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep close track of your hosting server and will update Ubuntu regularly.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
Ubuntu is among the OS options that you will find on our registration page if you decide to get one of our Linux dedicated web hosting
. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, so as to match the system requirements of the apps that you intend to set up on the server. You can also select the software which will run on your machine, because we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be customized software of your liking. You will be able to install the latter without problems by using a Secure Shell console, because you will receive root-level access and you will get full control of the server. You can set up a web hosting Control Panel too and manage some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, contains Operating System upgrades.
