Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting quite popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will discover plenty of resources on the net. One of the major benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it includes tens of thousands of software packages that can be freely modified according to your needs as well as 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 comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

Ubuntu is available with our Linux VPS hosting and you can acquire a VPS running it in less than 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, which means that you're able to choose the one that you need if the software that you want to run on the server has specific system requirements in this regard. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you can set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have a web interface and all of the required web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etcetera. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of setup is more effective for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.

You can manage everything using a console, but if you want, you can also set up a hosting Control Panel, as long as it's compatible with Ubuntu.
