Ubuntu is one of the most widely used Linux editions for desktop computers, yet the OS also has a server edition, that has been gaining popularity recently. Ubuntu is very quick and supports numerous hardware components, so it can function on pretty much any computer not using a lot of resources. The Operating System is widely known as pretty reliable and secure, plus due to its popularity, you will find many different sources online with information about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, so you will be able to get security patches without worrying about softwaretroubles in the long term. As Ubuntu is totally free to use, you'll be able to modify both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and set up in any way you find fit, with no limitations and without paying any license fees. In this way, you can obtain an effective, stable and powerful website hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
Ubuntu is available with all of our Linux VPS web hosting and you can purchase a VPS running it in just 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, which means that you're able to choose the one that you need if the software that you wish to run on your server has specific system requirements regarding this. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you can 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 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 such a setup is more effective for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You are able to get Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans, because we provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. Thus, you'll be able to select the more appropriate of them, based on the type of apps which you'd like to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control of the software environment. We will set up only the Apache web server software, so you are able to add whatever else you'll need, even if it is not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You are able to manage everything through a console, however if you would like, you may also install a hosting Control Panel, as long as it's compatible with Ubuntu. If you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a well-balanced and safe server environment.
