Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting pretty popular too. The main reason is that the OS is really light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. In addition, 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 will discover numerous resources on the Internet. Among the basic advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it includes numerous software packages which can be freely adjusted in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the apps that you'd like 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 code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with each virtual private server
plan that we supply and everything will be set up within an hour, therefore you'll be able to start using the VPS without delay. We offer two separate versions because certain pieces of software have specific requirements so as to operate efficiently. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a world wide web interface and all the software that is needed for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; while if you order it with no Control Panel, you'll get just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so that you can install additional software through Secure Shell. If you decide to add the Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will monitor your server and will update Ubuntu regularly.

You may also choose the software that will run on your machine, as we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom-made software that you choose. You can install the latter without any problems using a Secure Shell console, since you will get root-level access and you'll get full control of the hosting server. You can set up a web hosting Control Panel too and control some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, includes OS upgrades.
