Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting quite popular too. The reason is that the OS is really light and it will function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you will find a number of resources on the Internet. Among the key advantages of this Operating System is that it includes numerous software packages that can be freely modified in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the applications which you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with our VPS servers and you can obtain a VPS running it in just an hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, which means that you're able to choose the one that you need if the software that you wish to run on your web hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed without a Control Panel, in which case you'll 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 will have a world wide web interface and all needed web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etcetera. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a setup is more efficient for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.
