Ubuntu is one of the most preferred Linux releases for personal computers, yet the OS also has a server edition, that has been becoming more popular nowadays. Ubuntu is extremely fast and supports multiple hardware components, so it can run on virtually any kind of computer without consuming a lot of resources. The Operating System is considered to be really dependable and secure, plus as a result of its popularity, you'll find many different sources online with information about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, so you'll be able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareproblems in the long run. Due to the fact that Ubuntu is free to use, you will be able to customize both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and install in any way you find fit, without any limitations and without any license fees. In this way, you can get an effective, stable and powerful hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with our Linux VPS hosting service and you can buy a VPS running it in less than one hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, which means that you'll be able to select the one that you need when the software that you wish to run on your server has particular system requirements in this regard. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you'll be able to install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you'll have a world wide web interface and all of the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but such a setup is more suitable for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this during the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is among the OS options that you'll find on our registration page in case you decide to get one of our Linux dedicated service. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, to match the system requirements of the applications that you intend to install on the server. You can also select the software that will run on your machine, due to the fact that we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be tailor-made software of your choice. You are able to install the latter without any problems through a Secure Shell console, as you'll get root-level access and you will get full control over the hosting server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel as well and manage some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, features OS updates.
