Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting very popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is very light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a protected and stable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will find numerous resources online. Among the basic benefits of this OS is the fact that it features a large number of software packages which can be easily adjusted according to your needs and the needs of the apps that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you are able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with each virtual private server package that we provide and everything is set up within one hour, which means that you are able to start using your VPS without delay. We offer two separate versions since some pieces of software have certain requirements so as to operate effectively. You can manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get an online interface and all of the software that's needed for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it without any Control Panel, you will get just the OS and the Apache web server software, so you will be able to set up additional software using Secure Shell. When you choose to add our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu regularly.
