Ubuntu is among the most popular Linux releases for desktop computers, however the Operating System also has a server version, which has been becoming more popular lately. Ubuntu is extremely fast and supports a variety of hardware components, so it can function on pretty much any kind of server without consuming a lot of system resources. The Operating System is regarded as being very reliable and secure, not to mention that due to its popularity, you will find numerous 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 5 years, so you will be able to get security patches without worrying about softwareissues in the long term. Since Ubuntu is free to use, you'll be able to modify both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and set up in any way you find fit, with no limitations and without any license fees. In this way, you'll obtain a fast, secure and powerful web hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS web hosting and based on what requirements your web applications have, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with just a few mouse clicks during the registration process. If you get your server without a web hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be set up on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you can use a console in order to access the website hosting server and to install a software environment that you choose. If you obtain your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have an online interface with which you are able to control almost everything as easily as you manage a regular shared account and all of the required MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, but the root access to your server is restricted. If you don't have much experience, or in case you don't like to waste time on VPS management procedures, you can reap the benefits of our Managed Services upgrade, which features once a week Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
We supply Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with only a click on the order page. We supply two versions, in order to make sure that the server will meet the requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root accessibility to the server will help you set up any other software, since the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server securely through a console, yet in case you would like to use a web interface, you're free to set up any Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle a variety of tasks for you, which includes regular Operating System updates.
