Ubuntu is one of the most widespread Linux versions for desktop computers, however the Operating System also has a server version, that has been gaining in popularity lately. Ubuntu is really quick and supports a variety of hardware components, so it can work on pretty much every server without using too much system resources. The OS is widely known as very reliable and secure, plus because of its popularity, you'll find various sources online with information about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, so you will be able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareissues over time. Since Ubuntu is free to use, you can customize both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and install in any way you see fit, without any limitations and without having to pay any license fees. This way, you'll receive a quick, dependable and powerful hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We supply Ubuntu with our VPS servers and depending on what system requirements your web apps have, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with only a couple of mouse clicks during the order process. If you order your server devoid of website hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be installed in addition to Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you can use a console in order to access the server and to set up a software environment of your choice. When you get your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface with which you are able to control almost everything just as easily as you manage a standard shared account and all of the essential MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, however the root access to your server will be restricted. If you do not have much experience, or in case you don't plan to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you're able to reap the benefits of our Managed Services upgrade, which includes once a week Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You are able to acquire Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages, since we supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this OS. Thus, you can choose the more appropriate of the two, based on the type of applications that you wish to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control of the software environment. We will install just the Apache web server software, therefore you'll be able to add whatever else you may need, even if it is not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You're able to manage everything through a console, but if you would like, you may also set up a web hosting Control Panel, when it supports Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your Operating System up-to-date on a weekly basis and will ensure that you have the latest software packages for a reliable and secure server environment.
