Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting pretty popular too. The reason is that the OS is extremely light and it'll function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover numerous resources on the net. One of the major benefits of this Operating System is that it has a great number of software packages that can be freely modified according to your needs as well as the needs of the apps that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.

With any of our Linux VPS plans, you will be able to pick the Ubuntu Operating System from the order page. We're aware of the fact that some programs have certain requirements with regard to the OS they're set up on, so you will be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. You can also choose whether your VPS should come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will receive everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etcetera. software, and you can make everything by using your web browser, but the root access is limited; while in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, so you are able to install anything freely thanks to the full root access that you'll be given, yet the server management tasks will be done using a console. Our sysadmins will monitor your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis if you add the optional Managed Services bundle which we offer.
