Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting very popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it will run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you'll find a number of resources on the web. One of the major benefits of this Operating System is that it has a large number of software packages which can be easily modified in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the apps that you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
Ubuntu is available with our VPS web hosting and you can acquire a VPS running it in less than one hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, which means that you are able to pick the one which you need if the software that you wish to run on the website hosting server has particular system requirements regarding this. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you'll be able to install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have a world wide web interface and all of the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of installation is more effective for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Thus, you're able to select the more appropriate of the two, based on the type of applications that you wish to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control of the software setting. We will install just the Apache web server software, therefore you'll be able to add anything else you will need, even if it is not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You are able to control everything using a console, yet if you would like, you can also install a hosting Control Panel, provided that it's compatible with Ubuntu. If you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your Operating System up-to-date every week and will make sure that you have the most recent software packages for a reliable and protected server environment.
