Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting really popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. 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 warrants that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you'll discover lots of resources online. One of the major advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it includes thousands of software packages which can be easily modified according to your needs and / or the requirements of the applications that you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We provide Ubuntu with all of our VPS servers and depending on what system requirements your web apps have, you'll be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with just a few clicks throughout the order process. When you order your server with no website hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be set up along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, thus you'll be able to use a console to access the server and to install a software environment of your liking. When you acquire your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have an online interface with which you are able to manage almost everything just as easily as you control an ordinary shared account and all required MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, however the root access to the server will be limited. If you don't have much experience, or in case you don't plan to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you can take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, that includes regular Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
