Ubuntu is an extremely popular Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is used mainly on PCs, its server version has been gaining in popularity these days as well.

It's also very stable and secure and has an at least a five-year support life cycle, so you can get official security and performance updates. Unlike many other Operating Systems, Ubuntu is distributed without any license fees and you're able to customize its core, or all of the numerous packages it features, in any way you see fit. This allows you to set up the ideal software environment for all your web apps regardless of their requirements. Due to the popularity of the OS, Ubuntu has large developer and user communities, so you will always find a lot of materials on the world wide web regarding any question or problem that you may have.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We offer Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS hosting plans and based on what requirements your web apps have, you can get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with just a couple of mouse clicks throughout the order process. When you get your server without a web hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, therefore you're able to use a console in order to access the server and to set up a software environment that you choose. If you order your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have an online interface with which you'll be able to control almost everything just as easily as you control a standard shared account and all the essential MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, but the root access to your server will be limited. When you don't have much experience, or if you do not want to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you can reap the benefits of our Managed Services upgrade, that features every week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You can acquire Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans, considering that we supply 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this Operating System. Thus, you're able to select the more appropriate of them, based on the type of apps that you need to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control of the software environment. We will set up only the Apache web server software, so you're able to add anything else you will need, even if it is not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You can manage everything through a console, yet if you want, you may also set up a website hosting Control Panel, on condition that it supports Ubuntu. In case you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll maintain your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the latest software packages for a reliable and secure server environment.
