Ubuntu is among the most widely used Linux versions for desktop machines, but the OS also has a server version, that has been gaining popularity recently. Ubuntu is extremely fast and supports numerous hardware components, so it can run on pretty much every computer without using an excessive amount of system resources. The Operating System is regarded as being very dependable and secure, not to mention that because of its popularity, you'll 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 will be able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareissues in the long run. Since Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you will be able to modify both its core and the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and install in any way you see fit, devoid of restrictions and without any license fees. This way, you will get a rapid, secure and powerful hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS servers and you can purchase a VPS running it in less than sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, which means that you are able to select the one which you need when the software that you want to run on the hosting server has particular system requirements in this regard. You may 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 set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you'll have a world wide web interface and all the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. 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 via your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
