Ubuntu is one of the most widely used Linux editions for desktop machines, however the OS also has a server edition, that has been gaining in popularity these days. Ubuntu is very quick and supports a wide range of hardware components, so it can run on virtually every machine not using an excessive amount of system resources. The OS is widely known as very reliable 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 5 years, so you're able to get security patches without having to worry about softwaretroubles in the long run. Due to the fact that Ubuntu is free to use, you will be able to modify 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 restrictions and without paying any license fees. In this way, you can receive a quick, stable and powerful hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
With any of our VPS web hosting services
, you can decide on the Ubuntu Operating System on the order page. We're aware of the fact that some pieces of software have specific requirements with regard to the OS they can be set up on, so you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. In addition, you can select whether your VPS should include our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will have everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you will be able to do everything through your Internet browser, but the root access is limited; while in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, so you can install anything freely because of the full root access which you will be given, yet the server management tasks will be performed from a console. Our admins will keep track of your VPS and update the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis when you add the additional Managed Services package which we offer.
