Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux editions for personal computers, but the Operating System also has a server edition, that has been gaining popularity these days. Ubuntu is very fast and supports numerous hardware components, so it can run on virtually any computer not consuming an excessive amount of resources. The Operating System is widely known as pretty dependable and secure, not to mention that because of its popularity, you will find a number of sources online with information about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, so you will be able to get security patches without worrying about softwareissues in the long run. Due to the fact that Ubuntu is free to use, you can modify both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and set up in any way you find fit, without any limitations and without having to pay any license fees. In this way, you will receive a rapid, stable and powerful website hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS servers and you can obtain a VPS running it in just sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so that you can pick the one that you need if the software that you wish to run on the server has particular system requirements in this regard. You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you will be able to set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you'll have a world wide web interface and all of the required web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of setup is more effective for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

If the apps that you want to run require Ubuntu as well as a lot of resources, you should select one of our dedicated servers and add this OS to your order with a single click. You will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of your Operating System, depending on which edition your apps need in order to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Since you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on your machine and you'll be able to set up anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't come with a web hosting Control Panel, therefore you can manage your content using a Secure Shell console, however if you'd like, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to command your Internet sites. If you do not want to lose time maintaining the server, you can use the Managed Services package, which includes many tasks done by our sysadmins on your behalf. The package comes with routine updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
