Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux versions for desktop machines, however the OS also has a server release, which has been gaining in popularity recently. Ubuntu is really quick and supports multiple hardware components, so it can work on virtually any computer not using an excessive amount of resources. The Operating System is considered to be very reliable and secure, not to mention that as a result of its popularity, you will find quite a lot of sources online with info about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, so you will be able to get security patches without worrying about softwareproblems in the long run. Since Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you are able to customize both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and set up in any way you find fit, with no limitations and without any license fees. In this way, you can acquire an effective, stable and powerful web hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS
We offer Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS and depending on what requirements your web apps have, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with only a few mouse clicks throughout the order process. If you order your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software which will be set up in addition to Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to use a console to gain access to the website hosting server and to set up a software environment of your liking. If you order your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you are able to control almost everything as easily as you manage a standard shared account and all the necessary MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, but the root access to the server is restricted. In case you don't have a lot of experience, or in case you do not plan to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you'll be able to take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, which includes once a week Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
You can acquire Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans, as we supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. This way, you're able to pick the more appropriate of these two, based on the type of apps that you wish to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control of the software setting. We will install just the Apache web server software, which means that you will be able to add everything else you'll need, even when it is not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You can control everything through a console, yet if you would like, you can also install a web hosting Control Panel, on condition that it is compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your Operating System up-to-date every week and will ensure that you have the most recent software packages for a stable and secure server environment.
