Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover lots of resources on the web. Among the major benefits of this OS is that it comes with a great number of software packages that can be freely modified in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the apps which you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With all of our VPS servers, you are able to choose the Ubuntu OS on the order page. We are aware of the fact that some pieces of software have certain requirements in terms of the Operating System they can be set up on, so you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. In addition, you can select if your VPS should feature the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will get everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to make everything via your web browser, however the root access is limited; whereas in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, so you can set up anything freely due to the full root access which you'll be given, however the server management tasks are done from a console. Our administrators will monitor your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu installation weekly if you add the optional Managed Services bundle that we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

If the applications that you wish to run require Ubuntu as well as lots of system resources, you can opt for one of our dedicated servers and add this OS to your order with a single click. You're able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of the OS, according to which release your apps need to work properly and to get the most of the server hardware.
