Ubuntu is among the most widely used Linux versions for personal computers, but the OS also has a server version, that has been becoming more popular recently. Ubuntu is really quick and supports numerous hardware components, so it can run on pretty much every machine not using an excessive amount of system resources. The OS is regarded as being pretty reliable and secure, not to mention that as a result of its popularity, you will find quite a lot of sources online with information about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, so you are able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareproblems in the long run. Since Ubuntu is totally free to use, you're able to modify both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and install in any way you find fit, devoid of restrictions and without having to pay any license fees. This way, you can obtain an effective, secure and powerful web hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with our VPS hosting and depending on what requirements your web apps have, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with only a few mouse clicks during the order process. If you get your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you are able to use a console to access the server and to set up a software environment of your choice. When you get your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you are able to manage almost everything just as easily as you manage a regular shared account and all of the necessary MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to the server will be restricted. If you don't have much experience, or if you do not plan to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you're able to take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which features regular Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
Ubuntu is among the OS options that you will find on our order page if you choose to get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages. We'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, so as to meet the system requirements of the applications that you'd like to set up on the server. You can also choose the software that will operate on your machine, because we will install only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom-made software of your choice. You'll be able to set up the latter without any problems by using a Secure Shell console, as you will get root-level access and you will have full control over the server. You can set up a hosting Control Panel as well and manage some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, comes with OS upgrades.
