Ubuntu - the Linux Distribution that started small and has grown to be among the most preferred OSes on the market. Learn more about its benefits and drawbacks.
Ubuntu is among the most preferred Linux versions for desktop computers, but the Operating System also has a server version, which has been becoming more popular lately. Ubuntu is really quick and supports a wide range of hardware components, so it can function on pretty much any kind of machine not using a lot of resources. The Operating System is regarded as being really reliable and secure, not to mention that as a result of its popularity, you'll find quite a lot of sources online with info about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, so you are able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareproblems in the long run. As Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you will be able to customize both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and install in any way you see fit, without any limitations and without having to pay any license fees. In this way, you can acquire an effective, stable and powerful website hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you are able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each and every VPS server
package that we supply and everything is set up within 60 minutes, so you are able to start using the VPS right away. We offer two different versions due to the fact that certain programs have specific requirements so as to function efficiently. You'll be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface and all the software that's required for your sites will be pre-installed; while if you order it devoid of Control Panel, you'll receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you are able to set up additional software through Secure Shell. When you choose to add our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep track of your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu regularly.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We provide Ubuntu with our dedicated server
packages and if you need this Operating System, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with only a click on the registration page. We offer two editions, in order to make sure that the hosting server will match the requirements of the software that you would like to install. The full root accessibility to the server will allow you to install various other software, because the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server safely through a console, but if you would like to use a web interface, you're free to set up any Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to focus your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you're able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of a number of tasks for you, including once a week OS updates.
