Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a secure and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you will find a number of resources online. Among the main benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it contains a large number of software packages which can be easily modified in accordance with your needs and the needs of the applications which you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
With any of our VPS servers, you'll be able to choose the Ubuntu OS from the order page. We're aware of the fact that some pieces of software have certain requirements with regard to the OS they're set up on, which means that you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. In addition, you can select whether the VPS should feature the Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will have everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you are able to do everything through your Internet browser, yet the root access is limited; whereas in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, so you'll be able to set up anything freely because of the full root access which you will be given, but the server management tasks will be done from a console. Our administrators can keep track of your VPS and update the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis when you add the additional Managed Services bundle which we offer.
