Ubuntu is one of the most preferred Linux editions for desktop machines, however the OS also has a server version, that has been gaining in popularity nowadays. Ubuntu is very quick and supports various hardware components, so it can function on pretty much any kind of machine without using too much resources. The OS is regarded as being really reliable and secure, plus because of its popularity, you will find various sources online with information about any question or problem that you might 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 softwaretroubles in the long term. Because Ubuntu is totally free to use, you'll be able to customize both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and install in any way you see fit, with no limitations and without any license fees. In this way, you'll obtain an effective, secure and powerful hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you'll be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each and every VPS server plan that we supply and everything is set up within 1 hour, so you'll be able to start using the VPS right away. We provide two different editions due to the fact that some programs have particular requirements to function effectively. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get a world wide web interface and all the software which is necessary for your websites will be pre-installed; while in case you order it without any Control Panel, you'll receive only the OS and the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to install other software using Secure Shell. If you choose to include the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will monitor your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options which you will find on our order page if you want to obtain one of our dedicated servers. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, so as to satisfy the system requirements of the applications that you'd like to install on the server. You can also select the software which will run on your machine, because we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be customized software that you choose. You will be able to install the latter without any problems using a Secure Shell console, because you will receive root-level access and you'll get full control of your hosting server. You can set up a hosting Control Panel too and manage some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features Operating System updates.
