Ubuntu is among the most widely used Linux editions for desktop machines, but the OS also has a server edition, which has been gaining in popularity these days. Ubuntu is very fast and supports various hardware components, so it can work on pretty much every machine not using an excessive amount of resources. The Operating System is considered to be pretty dependable and secure, plus as a result of its popularity, you will find quite a lot of 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 will be able to get security patches without worrying about softwareissues over time. Because Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you're able to modify both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and set up in any way you find fit, with no restrictions and without any license fees. In this way, you can get a quick, stable and powerful website hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
We offer Ubuntu with our Linux VPS web hosting packages and based on what requirements your web apps have, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with only a couple of clicks during the order process. If you order your server with no web hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software that will be installed on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, thus you'll be able to use a console to access the website hosting server and to create a software environment that you choose. When you obtain your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll have an online interface with which you'll be able to manage almost everything as quickly as you control a regular shared account and all the important MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, however the root access to the server will be limited. If you do not have a lot of experience, or in case you do not wish to waste time on VPS management procedures, you're able to reap the benefits of the Managed Services upgrade, that features every week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
We offer Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with just a click on the order page. We offer two editions, so as to make sure that the hosting server will meet the requirements of the software that you'd like to set up. The full root accessibility to your server will allow you to install any other software, because the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server securely through a console, yet if you prefer to use a web interface, you're free to set up any Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you are able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of plenty of tasks for you, among them weekly Operating System upgrades.
