Ubuntu is among the most widely used Linux releases for desktop computers, but the OS also has a server version, which has been becoming more popular recently. Ubuntu is very fast and supports a wide range of hardware components, so it can run on pretty much any kind of server not consuming too much system resources. The OS is regarded as being very dependable and secure, not to mention that due to its popularity, you will find many different sources online with information about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, so you are able to get security patches without worrying about softwareproblems in the long term. Since Ubuntu is totally free to use, you can modify both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and set up in any way you see fit, with no restrictions and without paying any license fees. This way, you will obtain a quick, secure and powerful website hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS servers and you can get a VPS running it in less than an hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so you'll be able to select the one which you need when the software that you would like to run on the hosting server has particular system requirements regarding this. You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you'll be able to set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have an online interface and all the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etcetera. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of installation is more suitable for users with less experience. We will also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, to satisfy the system requirements of the apps that you would like to set up on the server. You may also choose the software which will operate on your machine, since we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be tailor-made software that you choose. You are able to set up the latter without problems from a Secure Shell console, as you will have root-level access and you'll have full control of your hosting server. You are free to set up a hosting Control Panel too and control some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine.
