Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting pretty popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will discover plenty of resources on the Internet. Among the main advantages of this OS is the fact that it features numerous software packages which can be freely adjusted according to your needs and the requirements of the applications that you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With all of our Linux VPS servers, you are able to pick the Ubuntu Operating System on the order page. We are aware of the fact that some programs have certain requirements in terms of the Operating System they are installed on, which means that you are able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. In addition, you can select if your VPS should come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will get everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to make everything by using your online browser, but the root access will be limited; while in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so that you can set up anything freely thanks to the full root access which you'll be given, yet the server management tasks can be performed from a console. Our sysadmins can monitor your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation weekly if you add the optional Managed Services package that we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options which you will find on our order page if you choose to get one of our Linux dedicated servers. We will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, so as to satisfy the system requirements of the apps which you'd like to set up on the server. You may also select the software which will operate on your machine, due to the fact that we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom-made software of your liking. You can set up the latter without any problems by using a Secure Shell console, since you will receive root-level access and you'll get full control of the server. You can set up a website hosting Control Panel as well and manage some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, comes with Operating System upgrades.
