Ubuntu is among the most preferred Linux releases for desktop machines, but the Operating System also has a server release, that has been gaining popularity recently. Ubuntu is extremely fast and supports a variety of hardware components, so it can run on virtually any machine without using a lot of system resources. The Operating System is regarded as being pretty reliable and secure, plus because of its popularity, you'll find quite a lot of sources online with info about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, so you can get security patches without worrying about softwareissues in the long term. Because Ubuntu is totally free to use, you'll be able to modify both its core and the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and set up in any way you see fit, with no limitations and without having to pay any license fees. In this way, you will receive a rapid, stable and powerful website hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each VPS server package that we provide and everything is set up within an hour, which means that you can start using the VPS right away. We offer two separate editions due to the fact that certain programs have certain requirements so as to function properly. You will be able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a world wide web interface and the software that's required for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it devoid of Control Panel, you will receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to install other software using Secure Shell. If you decide to include the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep an eye on your hosting server and will update Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is among the OS options which you can find on our registration page when you choose to obtain one of our dedicated service. We'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, so as to meet the system requirements of the applications that you'd like to set up on the server. You may also select the software which will run on your machine, since we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom-made software of your liking. You are able to install the latter without problems using a Secure Shell console, since you will receive root-level access and you'll get full control over the hosting server. You are free to set up a hosting Control Panel too and manage some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, includes OS updates.
