Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting quite popular as well. The reason is that the OS is extremely light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will find numerous resources on the web. Among the basic advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it includes a large number of software packages which can be easily customized according to your needs and / or the requirements of the applications which you need 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 isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We provide Ubuntu with all of our VPS web hosting plans and depending on what system requirements your web applications have, you'll be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with only a couple of mouse clicks during the registration process. When you order your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be installed in addition to Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to use a console to gain access to the hosting server and to set up a software environment that you choose. If you obtain your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you'll be able to manage almost everything as quickly as you manage a regular shared account and all vital MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, but the root access to the server will be limited.
