Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting pretty popular too. The main reason is that the OS is amazingly light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and stable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will discover plenty of resources on the Internet. Among the key benefits of this OS is that it includes thousands of software packages that can be freely adjusted in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the apps that you intend to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
Ubuntu is available with our Linux VPS web hosting and you can buy a VPS running it in just sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so that you're able to select the one which you need when the software that you wish to run on the web hosting server has particular system requirements regarding this. You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you'll be able to set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have a world wide web interface and all the required web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etcetera. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a setup is more effective for users with less experience. We will also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so throughout the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can get Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages, as we supply 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this Operating System. In this way, you're able to select the more appropriate of the two, based on the type of apps which you'd like to install and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control over the software environment. We will install only the Apache web server software, so you are able to add whatever else you need, even if it is not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You will be able to manage everything through a console, but if you would like, you can also set up a web hosting Control Panel, when it supports Ubuntu. In case you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your Operating System up-to-date on a weekly basis and will ensure that you have the latest software packages for a reliable and secure server environment.
