Ubuntu - the Linux Distribution which started out small and is now one of the most well-known OSes in existence. Find out more about its benefits and drawbacks.
Ubuntu is among the most popular Linux editions for desktop computers, but the OS also has a server version, which has been gaining popularity recently. Ubuntu is extremely fast and supports a number of hardware components, so it can function on pretty much any server not using too much system resources. The Operating System is considered to be really reliable and secure, not to mention that as a result of its popularity, you will find quite a lot of sources online with information about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, so you'll be able to get security patches without worrying about softwareproblems in the long run. As Ubuntu is totally free to use, you'll be able to customize both its core and the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and set up in any way you see fit, with no restrictions and without any license fees. This way, you will acquire a fast, dependable and powerful web hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you can get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each virtual private server
package that we offer and everything is set up within an hour, which means that you are able to start using the VPS right away. We offer two separate editions since some programs have specific requirements to function properly. You can manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will receive a world wide web interface and the software which is necessary for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it with no Control Panel, you will receive only the OS and the Apache web server software, so that you will be able to install other software employing Secure Shell. When you choose to add the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will monitor your server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
If the apps that you want to run require Ubuntu and lots of resources, you can opt for our dedicated hosting services
and add this Operating System to your order with a single click. You'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of your Operating System, according to which edition your applications need to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware. Due to the fact that you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on the machine and you will be able to install anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not feature a hosting Control Panel, and you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, but if you want, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your web sites. When you do not want to lose time controlling your hosting server, you can employ our Managed Services package, that features a lot of tasks performed by our sysadmins on your behalf. The package includes regular updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
