Ubuntu is really quick and supports a wide range of hardware components, so it can run on virtually any kind of server not using too much resources. The Operating System is considered to be really reliable and secure, plus as a result of its popularity, you will find many different sources online with info 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 softwareproblems in the long term. As Ubuntu is free to use, you'll be able to modify both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and install in any way you find fit, without any restrictions and without paying any license fees.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

Ubuntu is available with all our Linux VPS web hosting services and you can acquire a VPS running it in less than 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, which means that you can select the one that you need when the software that you want to run on the hosting server has particular system requirements regarding this. You can 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'll be able to set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have a web interface and all of 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 this type of setup is more effective for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so throughout the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you can find on our registration page when you decide to get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, to meet the system requirements of the applications that you need to install on the server. You can also select the software which will run on your machine, due to the fact that we will set up only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom software of your liking. You are able to set up the latter without problems from a Secure Shell console, because you will get root-level access and you'll get full control of your server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel too and manage some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features OS updates.
