Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting quite popular too. The reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it'll run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will find lots of resources on the web. One of the main advantages of this OS is the fact that it comes with numerous software packages which can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the applications which you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each virtual private server plan that we provide and everything will be set up within one hour, therefore you'll be able to start using the VPS right away. We offer two separate editions because some pieces of software have specific requirements to work effectively. 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 will receive a web interface and the software that's necessary for your sites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it with no Control Panel, you'll get only the OS and the Apache web server software, so you will be able to set up additional software through Secure Shell. If you choose to add the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep an eye on your server and will update Ubuntu on a regular basis.
