Ubuntu - the Linux Distribution which began small and is now among the most common OSes available. Learn more about its advantages and disadvantages.
Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, so if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover a number of resources on the net. One of the main advantages of this OS is that it contains numerous software packages that can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs and the needs of the applications which you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We provide Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS plans
and based on what requirements your web applications have, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with just a few mouse clicks during the registration process. If you get your server with no website hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be set up in addition to Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to use a console to access the hosting server and to create a software environment of your choice. When you order your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a world wide web interface with which you will be able to control almost everything as quickly as you manage a regular shared account and all the important MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to the server is limited. If you don't have a lot of experience, or if you don't like to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you're able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that includes regular Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You are able to obtain Ubuntu with our dedicated server
plans, due to the fact that we supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this OS. This way, you'll be able to select the more appropriate of them, depending on the type of apps that you wish to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You will have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control of the software environment. We'll install only the Apache web server software, therefore you'll be able to add whatever else you'll need, even if it is not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You will be able to manage everything using a console, but if you want, you may also set up a website hosting Control Panel, on condition that it's compatible with Ubuntu. If you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your Operating System up-to-date every week and will make sure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a well-balanced and risk-free server environment.
