Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you'll discover plenty of resources online. Among the basic advantages of this OS is the fact that it includes a large number of software packages which can be easily changed according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

We supply Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS web hosting and based on what requirements your web apps have, you'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with only a few mouse clicks throughout the order process. When you get your server without a hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software which will be set up along with Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you are able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to install a software environment of your choice. When you obtain your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you are able to control almost everything as easily as you manage a standard shared account and all the necessary MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, however the root access to your server will be restricted. If you don't have much experience, or if you don't plan to waste time on VPS control procedures, you're able to reap the benefits of our Managed Services upgrade, which features regular Ubuntu Operating System updates.
