Ubuntu is one of the most preferred Linux versions for personal computers, however the Operating System also has a server version, that has been becoming more popular lately. Ubuntu is really quick and supports numerous hardware components, so it can run on pretty much any machine not consuming too much system resources. The Operating System is widely known as pretty reliable and secure, plus because of its popularity, you will find quite a lot of sources online with information about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, so you can get security patches without worrying about softwareproblems in the long run. Since Ubuntu is totally free to use, you will be able to customize both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and install in any way you see fit, with no restrictions and without any license fees. This way, you will obtain an effective, stable and powerful website hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with our VPS hosting plans and you can obtain a VPS running it in less than an hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so that you will be able to pick the one that you need when the software that you want to run on the website hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you can install anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have an online interface and all of the required web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of setup is more suitable for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this during the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We offer Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the order page. We supply two editions, in order to make sure that the server will meet the system requirements of the software that you'd like to install. The full root access to your server allows you to set up various other software, since the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You're able to access the server safely from a console, however in case you prefer to use an online interface, you can install any Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you would like to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of a variety of tasks for you, which includes regular Operating System updates.
