Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux editions for desktop machines, but the OS also has a server edition, that has been gaining popularity recently. Ubuntu is extremely fast and supports a wide range of hardware components, so it can work on pretty much every server not using too much resources. The Operating System is widely known as very reliable and secure, plus due to its popularity, you'll find a number of 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 five years, so you'll be able to get security patches without having to worry about softwareproblems over time. Due to the fact that Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you will be able to customize both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and install in any way you find fit, without any limitations and without having to pay any license fees. This way, you'll receive a fast, dependable and powerful web hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.

Ubuntu in VPS

Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS and you can buy a VPS running it in less than sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so you are able to select the one that you need when the software that you wish to run on the web hosting server has specific system requirements in this regard. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you'll be able to set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have a world wide web interface and all of the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a setup is more suitable for users with less experience. We will also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this during the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

We supply Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the registration page. We provide two releases, in order to make sure that the server will match the requirements of the software that you would like to install. The full root access to your server allows you to install any other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You are able to access the server securely through a console, yet in case you would like to use a web interface, you can set up any Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you want to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you are able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of a number of tasks for you, including weekly OS upgrades.
