Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting pretty popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it will run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a protected and stable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll find lots of resources on the web. Among the main benefits of this OS is that it has a large number of software packages which can be easily modified according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps that you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS

Ubuntu is available with all of our Linux VPS and you can obtain a VPS running it in less than 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, which means that you'll be able to pick the one that you need if the software that you wish to run on your web hosting server has particular system requirements in this regard. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you'll be able to install anything through 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 required web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of installation is more suitable for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so throughout the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.
