Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux editions for desktop computers, yet the Operating System also has a server version, which has been gaining popularity recently. Ubuntu is really quick and supports various hardware components, so it can run on pretty much any server without using a lot of system resources. The OS is regarded as being really reliable and secure, plus because of its popularity, you will find various sources online with information about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, so you are able to get security patches without worrying about softwareissues over time. Since Ubuntu is totally free to use, you can modify both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and set up in any way you see fit, without any limitations and without any license fees. In this way, you'll acquire a rapid, stable and powerful hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with all our Linux VPS plans and you can get a VPS running it in just one hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, which means that you can pick the one that you need when the software that you wish to run on the hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you will 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 limited, but this type of installation is more efficient for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the OS options which you will find on our registration page when you choose to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, to match the system requirements of the apps which you wish to set up on the server. You may also select the software which will operate on your machine, due to the fact that we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be custom-made software that you choose. You'll be able to set up the latter without problems through a Secure Shell console, as you'll get root-level access and you'll get full control of the server. You are free to install a web hosting Control Panel too and manage some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, includes Operating System updates.
