Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular too. The reason is the fact that the operating system is amazingly light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will discover lots of resources on the web. Among the basic benefits of this Operating System is that it has numerous software packages which can be freely changed in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the apps which you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

Ubuntu is available with all of our Linux VPS hosting packages and you can obtain a VPS running it in just 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, which means that you are able to select the one which you need if the software that you would like to run on your web hosting server has particular system requirements in this regard. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you'll be able to set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you'll have a web interface and all the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a installation is more suitable for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.
