Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting really popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it'll function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you'll discover plenty of resources on the Internet. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is that it contains a large number of software packages which can be freely customized according to your needs and the needs of the applications that you would like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With all of our VPS servers, you can pick the Ubuntu Operating System from the order page. We recognize the fact that some pieces of software have specific requirements in terms of the OS they're installed on, which means that you'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. Also, you can select if the VPS should come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll receive everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etcetera. software, and you'll be able to make everything from your online browser, yet the root access will be limited; whereas in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, which means that you are able to set up anything freely due to the full root access that you'll be given, yet the server management tasks are performed through a console. Our system administrators will monitor your VPS and update the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis when you add the optional Managed Services bundle which we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the OS options which you will find on our order page in case you decide to acquire one of our dedicated servers. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, in order to satisfy the system requirements of the applications that you want to install on the server. You can also choose the software which will run on your machine, as we will install only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be custom software that you choose. You'll be able to set up the latter without problems through a Secure Shell console, as you'll get root-level access and you will have full control of your server. You can install a website 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 easier for you, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, includes Operating System upgrades.
