Ubuntu - the Linux Distribution that began small and is already among the most well-known Operating Systems these days. Learn more about its pros and cons.
Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is really light and it'll run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, so if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you'll find lots of resources on the Internet. Among the basic advantages of this Operating System is that it comes with a large number of software packages that can be easily modified in accordance with 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 license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you are able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with each and every virtual private server
plan that we offer and everything is set up within an hour, which means that you can start using your VPS without delay. We supply two separate editions due to the fact that some pieces of software have specific requirements in order to operate efficiently. You are able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get an online interface and the software which is required for your sites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it without any Control Panel, you'll receive only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you are able to install other software employing Secure Shell. When you decide to add the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the registration process or at any later time, our admins will monitor your server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Ubuntu is among the OS options that you will find on our order page if you choose to acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, in order to meet the system requirements of the apps that you want to install on the server. You may also select the software that will operate on your machine, because we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom-made software of your choice. You can install the latter without problems using a Secure Shell console, since you will have root-level access and you will get full control over the server. You can set up a website hosting Control Panel too and control some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, comes with Operating System upgrades.
