Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting really popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is really light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will discover numerous resources on the net. Among the main advantages of this OS is the fact that it comes with a great number of software packages which can be freely modified according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you would like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with our VPS plans and you can purchase a VPS running it in less than one hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, which means that you'll be able to select the one that you need if the software that you would like to run on the server has particular system requirements in this regard. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you'll be able to set up 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 the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etcetera. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a setup is more suitable for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.
