Ubuntu is one of the most preferred Linux versions for desktop machines, but the OS also has a server version, that has been gaining in popularity nowadays. Ubuntu is extremely fast and supports a number of hardware components, so it can function on pretty much every server without consuming too much system resources. The Operating System is widely known as very reliable and secure, not to mention that as a result of its popularity, you will find various sources online with information about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, so you're able to get security patches without worrying about softwaretroubles in the long run. Due to the fact that Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you are 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 having to pay any license fees. This way, you can receive an effective, stable and powerful website hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with our Linux VPS servers and you can buy a VPS running it in just 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so you will be able to select the one which you need when the software that you want to run on the web hosting server has particular system requirements regarding this. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed without a Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you will be able to set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have an online interface and all the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etcetera. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of installation is more effective for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so throughout the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is among the Operating System options which you can find on our order page in case you decide to acquire one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, so as to meet the system requirements of the apps which you want to set up on the server. You can also choose the software that will run on your machine, as we will install only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom-made software that you choose. You are able to set up the latter without problems through a Secure Shell console, since you will get root-level access and you will get full control of the server. You are free to install a hosting Control Panel as well and control some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, includes Operating System updates.
