Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it will run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a secure and dependable software environment on your server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll find a number of resources on the net. Among the key benefits of this OS is the fact that it comes with numerous software packages that can be easily customized in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the applications that you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

Ubuntu is available with all our Linux VPS hosting services and you can purchase a VPS running it in less than one hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so you'll be able to pick the one that you need when the software that you wish to run on your hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you will 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 an online interface and all needed web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of installation is more efficient for users with less experience. We will also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so throughout the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.
