Ubuntu is among the most widespread Linux versions for personal computers, however the OS also has a server version, which has been gaining popularity nowadays. Ubuntu is very fast and supports a variety of hardware components, so it can work on virtually every computer without consuming a lot of system resources. The OS is considered to be pretty reliable and secure, plus because of its popularity, you'll find lots of sources online with info about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, so you will be able to get security patches without worrying about softwareissues in the long run. Because Ubuntu is free to use, you will be able to modify both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and set up in any way you see fit, with no restrictions and without having to pay any license fees. In this way, you will obtain a rapid, stable and powerful web hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with our VPS servers and you can get a VPS running it in less than 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, which means that you'll be able to choose the one that you need if the software that you wish to run on your web hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you can install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have an online interface and all of the required web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a installation is more suitable for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add our 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 Servers

Ubuntu is among the OS options which you will find on our order page in case you decide to obtain one of our dedicated servers. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, in order to match the system requirements of the applications that you'd like to install on the server. You can also select the software which will run on your machine, as we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be custom-made software of your liking. You are able to install the latter without any problems from a Secure Shell console, as you'll have root-level access and you will have full control over your hosting server. You are free to install a hosting Control Panel too and control some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, contains Operating System upgrades.
