Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux versions for desktop computers, yet the Operating System also has a server release, that has been gaining popularity lately. Ubuntu is very quick and supports a number of hardware components, so it can run on pretty much any kind of machine without using an excessive amount of system resources. The Operating System is considered to be really dependable and secure, not to mention that because of its popularity, you'll find various 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 can get security patches without worrying about softwareproblems in the long run. Due to the fact that Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you can customize both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and set up in any way you see fit, with no limitations and without any license fees. In this way, you can obtain a fast, dependable and powerful web hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with our VPS web hosting plans and you can purchase a VPS running it in just an hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so you're able to choose the one which you need when the software that you wish to run on your 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 install anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have a world wide web interface and all the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of setup is more efficient for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the OS options which you can find on our order page when you decide to acquire one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, to satisfy the system requirements of the apps that you'd like to install on the server. You may also select the software that will run on your machine, due to the fact that we will install only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be custom software of your liking. You will be able to install the latter without any problems employing a Secure Shell console, because you will get root-level access and you will get full control of your server. You are free to set up a website hosting Control Panel too and manage some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, includes OS upgrades.
