Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting very popular as well. The reason is that the OS is very light and it can run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will find plenty of resources on the net. One of the main advantages of this OS is the fact that it features numerous software packages that can be freely customized in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you intend to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with our Linux VPS service
and you can buy a VPS running it in just one hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, which means that you will be able to choose the one that you need if the software that you want to run on your website hosting server has particular system requirements regarding this. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed 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 set up on it, in which case you will have an online interface and all the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etcetera. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but such a setup is more efficient for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.
