Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a protected and stable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll discover plenty of resources online. One of the main benefits of this OS is that it includes a large number of software packages which can be easily customized in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the applications that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.

We are aware of the fact that some pieces of software have specific requirements in terms of the OS they are set up on, and you can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. Also, you can choose if the VPS should come with the Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll get everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etcetera. software, and you can do everything by using your Internet browser, but the root access is restricted; while in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, which means that you can install anything freely thanks to the full root access that you will be given, however the server management tasks can be performed from a console. Our administrators will monitor your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis if you add the additional Managed Services bundle which we offer.
