Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting very popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you will find lots of resources on the web. Among the key advantages of this OS is that it has a great number of software packages that can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the apps which you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with our VPS web hosting and depending on what system requirements your web applications have, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with only a couple of clicks during the order process. When you order your server with no website hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software which will be set up in addition to Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, therefore you are able to use a console in order to access the website hosting server and to install a software environment of your choice. If you order your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you can control almost everything as quickly as you manage an ordinary shared account and all the vital MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, yet the root access to your server will be restricted. If you do not have much experience, or in case you don't want to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you're able to reap the benefits of our Managed Services upgrade, that features every week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
