Ubuntu is among the most widely used Linux releases for personal computers, but the Operating System also has a server release, which has been gaining popularity lately. Ubuntu is very quick and supports a wide range of hardware components, so it can function on virtually any kind of computer without consuming too much system resources. The Operating System is widely known as really dependable and secure, not to mention that because of its popularity, you'll find a number 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're able to get security patches without worrying about softwareproblems in the long term. As Ubuntu is totally free to use, you are 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, without any limitations and without having to pay any license fees. In this way, you can obtain an effective, stable and powerful web hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with our Linux VPS servers
and you can purchase a VPS running it in less than an hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so you're able to select the one which you need when the software that you would like to run on the website hosting server has specific system requirements in this regard. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you can install anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have a 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 such a setup is more effective for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so throughout the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you will find on our order page if you want to get one of our dedicated servers
. We will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, so as to meet the system requirements of the apps which you need to set up on the server. You can also select the software which will run on your machine, due to the fact that we will set up only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom-made software that you choose. You will be able to install the latter without any problems employing a Secure Shell console, since you'll receive root-level access and you'll get full control over the hosting server. You are free to install a website hosting Control Panel too and manage some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, comes with Operating System updates.
