Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular as well. The main reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources on the Internet. Among the key benefits of this OS is the fact that it includes a large number of software packages which can be easily customized in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the applications that you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We provide Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS servers and based on what system requirements your web apps have, you will be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with just a couple of clicks throughout the registration process. If you get your server without a hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software that will be set up in addition to Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, thus you can use a console to gain access to the hosting server and to install a software environment that you choose. If you obtain your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you are able to control almost everything as quickly as you manage a regular shared account and all the necessary MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to your server is restricted.
