Find out about Ubuntu, how this small Linux distro has taken the world by storm and why it’s nowadays so popular.
Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting very popular as well. The reason is the fact that the OS is extremely light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any issue or have any question, you will discover numerous resources online. One of the major benefits of this OS is that it contains thousands of software packages that can be easily adjusted according to your needs and the needs of the apps which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS
Ubuntu is available with all our Linux VPS packages
and you can purchase a VPS running it in less than 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so that you are able to select the one that you need if the software that you want to run on the website hosting server has particular system requirements regarding this. You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed without a 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 necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of installation is more effective for users with less experience. We will also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
We offer Ubuntu with our dedicated server
packages and if you need this Operating System, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the registration page. We supply two editions, to ensure that the hosting server meets the requirements of the software that you wish to set up. The full root admission to the server will help you install various other software, because the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server securely through a console, but if you like better to use an online interface, you can install any kind of Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to focus your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of numerous tasks for you, among them regular OS upgrades.
