Ubuntu is among the most widely used Linux versions for personal computers, but the Operating System also has a server edition, which has been becoming more popular recently. Ubuntu is very fast and supports various hardware components, so it can function on virtually every computer not consuming an excessive amount of system resources. The OS is considered to be pretty reliable and secure, plus as a result of its popularity, you will find a number of sources online with info about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, so you'll be able to get security patches without worrying about softwaretroubles over time. As Ubuntu is free to use, you will be able to modify both its core and the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and install in any way you see fit, with no restrictions and without any license fees. In this way, you can receive a fast, secure and powerful hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS plans and you can acquire a VPS running it in less than sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, which means that you will be able to pick the one that you need when the software that you want to run on the web hosting server has specific system requirements in this regard. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you will be able to install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have an online interface and all needed web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etcetera. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but such a setup is more efficient for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add the 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 one of the Operating System options that you can find on our order page if you want to obtain one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, in order to satisfy the system requirements of the applications that you'd like to set up on the server. You may also choose the software which will run on your machine, because we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom software that you choose. You will be able to set up the latter without problems employing a Secure Shell console, because you will receive root-level access and you'll have full control of the server. You can install a hosting Control Panel too and control some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, comes with OS upgrades.
