Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux versions for desktop computers, yet the OS also has a server release, which has been becoming more popular lately. Ubuntu is extremely fast and supports a variety of hardware components, so it can work on virtually any machine without using too much resources. The Operating System is considered to be very reliable and secure, not to mention that due to its popularity, you'll find numerous sources online with information about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, so you'll be able to get security patches without worrying about softwaretroubles over time. Since Ubuntu is totally free to use, you will 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, with no restrictions and without having to pay any license fees. In this way, you will obtain a rapid, dependable and powerful web hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS servers and you can buy a VPS running it in just sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so you are able to choose the one that you need if 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 with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you can set up anything using 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 necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. 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 maintain 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 from your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
When the apps that you want to run require Ubuntu and plenty of system resources, you can select our dedicated servers and add this Operating System to your order with a single click. You will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of your Operating System, according to which release your apps need in order to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Since you'll have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on your machine and you can install anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't come with a website hosting Control Panel, which means that you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, however if you want, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to control your web sites. If you don't want to lose time maintaining the server, you can employ our Managed Services package, that includes lots of tasks done by our admins on your behalf. The upgrade comes with regular updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
