Ubuntu - the Linux Distribution that began small and has grown to be among the most common OSes out there. Find out more about its pros and cons.
Ubuntu is one of the most widespread Linux releases for desktop machines, but the Operating System also has a server release, which has been gaining popularity these days. Ubuntu is extremely fast and supports numerous hardware components, so it can function on virtually any kind of computer not using an excessive amount of resources. The Operating System is regarded as being very reliable and secure, plus because of its popularity, you will find quite a lot of sources online with information about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, so you are able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareproblems in the long run. Due to the fact that Ubuntu is totally free to use, you will be able to modify both its core and the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and set up in any way you find fit, devoid of restrictions and without paying any license fees. This way, you will receive a quick, stable and powerful website hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS
We provide Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS packages
and depending on what system requirements your web apps have, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with just a few mouse clicks throughout the order process. If you order your server without a web hosting Control Panel, the only software which will be installed on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, therefore you're able to use a console to access the hosting server and to set up a software environment that you choose. When you get your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you're able to manage almost everything as easily as you manage a standard shared account and all required MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, yet the root access to your server is restricted. In case you don't have a lot of experience, or in case you do not like to waste time on VPS control procedures, you can take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which features every week Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
We supply Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server
packages and if you need this OS, you will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the registration page. We provide two versions, in order to make sure that the server will match the system requirements of the software that you would like to install. The full root access to the server will enable you to install any other software, since the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You are able to access the server securely using a console, yet in case you like better to use an online interface, you can install any kind of Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you would like to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you can add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of various tasks for you, including once a week OS updates.
