Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a secure and dependable software environment on your server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will find plenty of resources on the Internet. Among the basic advantages of this OS is the fact that it comes with thousands of software packages which can be easily changed in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications which you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

Ubuntu is available with all of our Linux VPS web hosting and you can purchase a VPS running it in just 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, which means that you're able to pick the one that you need when the software that you would like to run on your server has specific system requirements regarding this. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you will be able to set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have an online interface and all the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a installation is more efficient for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.
