Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is very light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a protected and stable software environment on your server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you'll find lots of resources on the Internet. Among the major benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it includes a great number of software packages which can be freely changed according to your needs and the needs of the applications that you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With all of our VPS servers, you're able to select the Ubuntu OS on the order page. We're aware of the fact that some programs have certain requirements in terms of the OS they're set up on, so you will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. You can also select if the VPS should feature our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll find everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you can make everything through your Internet browser, however the root access is limited; while in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, which means that you are able to install anything freely because of the full root access that you'll be given, but the server management tasks will be performed through a console. Our administrators will watch your VPS and update the Ubuntu setup weekly when you add the optional Managed Services bundle which we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you will find on our order page when you choose to get one of our dedicated servers. We will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, so as to satisfy the system requirements of the applications which you would like to set up on the server. You can also select the software that will run on your machine, as we will install only the Apache web server software, so all else can be tailor-made software of your liking. You are able to install the latter without problems by using a Secure Shell console, because you'll get root-level access and you will have full control of your server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel too and manage some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features Operating System updates.
