Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll discover plenty of resources on the web. One of the key advantages of this Operating System is that it contains a great number of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications which you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each virtual private server plan that we supply and everything is set up within 1 hour, so you will be able to start using your VPS right away. We offer two separate versions since some programs have specific requirements in order to function properly. You're able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a world wide web interface and all the software that is required for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; while in case you order it without any Control Panel, you'll get only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you are able to install additional software through Secure Shell. When you choose to add the Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.
