Ubuntu is among the most preferred Linux editions for desktop computers, however the OS also has a server edition, that has been gaining popularity lately. Ubuntu is very quick and supports multiple hardware components, so it can work on virtually any kind of machine not consuming a lot of system resources. The Operating System is considered to be very reliable and secure, not to mention that because of its popularity, you will find numerous 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 five years, so you can get security patches without worrying about softwareproblems over time. Due to the fact that Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you're able to customize both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and set up in any way you find fit, devoid of restrictions and without having to pay any license fees. In this way, you can get an effective, secure and powerful web hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We offer Ubuntu with all of our VPS hosting plans and depending on what requirements your web applications have, you are able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with only a few mouse clicks during the registration process. When you get your server devoid of hosting Control Panel, the only software which will be set up on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, thus you can use a console to access the hosting server and to build a software environment of your liking. If you get your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you can manage almost everything as easily as you control a regular shared account and all of the required MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to your server is restricted. If you do not have much experience, or in case you don't plan to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you're able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which includes regular Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You can get Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages, as we provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. This way, you are able to pick the more appropriate of these two, based on the type of apps that you want to install and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control of the software environment. We will install just the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to add anything else you may need, even when it is not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You're able to manage everything from a console, however if you would like, you may also set up a website hosting Control Panel, as long as it supports Ubuntu. If you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your Operating System up-to-date every week and will ensure that you have the most recent software packages for a stable and safe server environment.
