Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is extremely light and it can run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you'll discover plenty of resources on the net. Among the main advantages of this OS is that it features a large number of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the applications that you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

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