Ubuntu is one of the most widely used Linux releases for personal computers, but the OS also has a server release, that has been gaining in popularity lately. Ubuntu is very quick and supports multiple hardware components, so it can run on virtually every machine without using a lot of system resources. The OS is regarded as being pretty reliable and secure, plus because of its popularity, you will find many different sources online with information about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, so you are able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareproblems in the long term. Due to the fact that Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you can customize both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and install in any way you see fit, with no limitations and without having to pay any license fees. This way, you will obtain a rapid, secure and powerful web hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
We offer Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS hosting services
and depending on what system requirements your web applications have, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with only a few clicks during the registration process. When you get your server devoid of website hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software which will be set up along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you're able to use a console to gain access to the website hosting server and to build a software environment that you choose. If you order your server with our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you will be able to manage almost everything as easily as you control a standard shared account and all important MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to your server is limited. If you don't have a lot experience, or if you do not want to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you're able to take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that features regular Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
Ubuntu is among the OS options which you will find on our registration page if you decide to obtain one of our Linux dedicated hosting services
. We'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, to satisfy the system requirements of the applications which you would like to set up on the server. You may also choose the software which will run on your machine, due to the fact that we will set up only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be customized software that you choose. 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'll have full control over the hosting server. You can install a web hosting Control Panel as well and control some things through 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 OS upgrades.
