Ubuntu is one of the most widely used Linux versions for desktop machines, yet the OS also has a server edition, that has been gaining popularity these days. Ubuntu is very fast and supports a wide range of hardware components, so it can work on virtually every computer not using too much resources. The Operating System is considered to be pretty reliable and secure, not to mention that due to its popularity, you'll find various sources online with info about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, so you can get security patches without having to worry about softwareproblems in the long term. Since Ubuntu is totally free to use, you are able to customize both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and set up in any way you see fit, with no restrictions and without paying any license fees. In this way, you can receive an effective, secure and powerful website hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with each and every VPS server plan that we supply and everything is set up within 1 hour, so you will be able to start using the VPS right away. We provide two different versions due to the fact that certain pieces of software have specific requirements in order to work properly. You are able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a world wide web interface and all of the software that's necessary for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it without any Control Panel, you will receive only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to set up other software employing Secure Shell. When you choose to add our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your server and will upgrade Ubuntu regularly.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options which you'll find on our order page when you choose to acquire one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, to match the system requirements of the applications that you need to set up on the server. You may also choose the software which will operate on your machine, as we will install only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom-made software that you choose. You are able to install the latter without problems using a Secure Shell console, as you will receive root-level access and you'll have full control over your hosting server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel as well and control some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, comes with Operating System updates.
