Ubuntu is among the most widespread Linux distributions for desktop computers, but the OS also has a server release, that has been becoming more popular recently. Ubuntu is extremely fast and supports a number of hardware components, so it can function on virtually any kind of machine not consuming an excessive amount of resources. The Operating System is widely known as pretty reliable and secure, plus due to its popularity, you'll find various sources online with info about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, so you can get security patches without worrying about softwareissues over time. Because Ubuntu is free to use, you can modify both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and install in any way you find fit, devoid of limitations and without having to pay any license fees. In this way, you can receive a quick, stable and powerful hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with each virtual private server plan that we offer and everything is set up within an hour, therefore you can start using the VPS right away. We provide two separate editions since certain pieces of software have certain requirements in order to operate effectively. You are able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface and all the software which is required for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it devoid of Control Panel, you'll get only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you are able to install additional software employing Secure Shell. When you decide to add our Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep track of your server and will update Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
Ubuntu is among the Operating System options which you'll find on our registration page in case you choose to obtain one of our Linux dedicated web hosting. We will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, to match the system requirements of the apps which you want to set up on the server. You may also choose the software which will operate on your machine, since we will install only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be tailor-made software of your choice. You'll be able to set up the latter without problems from a Secure Shell console, since you'll get root-level access and you'll get full control over the server. You are free to install a hosting Control Panel as well and manage some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, comes with OS updates.
