Ubuntu is one of the most preferred Linux editions for desktop machines, but the Operating System also has a server version, that has been gaining in popularity nowadays. Ubuntu is really quick and supports multiple hardware components, so it can function on virtually any server without consuming a lot of resources. The Operating System is considered to be very reliable and secure, plus due to its popularity, you'll 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 a minimum of 5 years, so you will be able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareissues in the long run. Because Ubuntu is totally free to use, you can customize 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, with no restrictions and without paying any license fees. This way, you'll get a fast, secure and powerful website hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS
We provide Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS packages and depending on what requirements your web applications have, you can get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with only a couple of mouse clicks during the order process. If you get your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software that will be set up in addition to Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to use a console to gain access to the website hosting server and to create a software environment of your choice. If you acquire your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll have an online interface with which you can control almost everything as quickly as you control a regular shared account and all the vital MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, but the root access to the server is restricted. In case you don't have much experience, or in case you do not like to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you're able to take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, that includes once a week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to acquire Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans, considering that we provide 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this Operating System. Thus, you're able to pick the more appropriate of the two, based on the type of apps that you would like to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control of the software environment. We will set up just the Apache web server software, so you're able to add whatever else you will need, even if it is not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You'll be able to control everything using a console, but if you want, you may also install a hosting Control Panel, on condition that it's compatible with Ubuntu. When you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the newest software packages for a reliable and secure server environment.
