Ubuntu is among the most preferred Linux editions for desktop computers, but the OS also has a server edition, that has been becoming more popular recently. Ubuntu is extremely fast and supports multiple hardware components, so it can run on pretty much any server not using an excessive amount of system resources. The Operating System is considered to be very reliable and secure, plus due to its popularity, you'll find lots of sources online with info about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, so you're able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareproblems over time. Since Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you're able to customize both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and install in any way you find fit, without any restrictions and without having to pay any license fees. This way, you will receive a rapid, stable and powerful web hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
Ubuntu is available with our VPS hosting 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 select the one which you need if the software that you wish to run on your web hosting server has specific system requirements in this regard. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you will be able to install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have a world wide web interface and all of the required web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etcetera. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a setup is more efficient for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this during the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
You'll be able to get Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans, since we provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this OS. Thus, you will be able to pick the more appropriate of the two, based on the type of apps which you want to install and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control of the software setting. We will set up just the Apache web server software, so you can add anything else you may need, even when it is not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You're able to manage everything from a console, yet if you want, you can also set up a website hosting Control Panel, when it is compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your Operating System up-to-date every week and will make sure that you have the latest software packages for a well-balanced and protected server environment.
