Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware with no 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 five years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover plenty of resources on the net. One of the key advantages of this OS is that it includes numerous software packages that can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the applications which you intend to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We provide Ubuntu with all our VPS servers and depending on what requirements your web applications have, you're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with only a couple of mouse clicks during the registration process. If you get your server with no hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be installed in addition to Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to use a console to access the website hosting server and to install a software environment that you choose. If you acquire your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you will be able to manage almost everything as quickly as you manage a standard shared account and all necessary MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, but the root access to your server is restricted.
