Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it'll function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover numerous resources online. Among the key benefits of this Operating System is that it has a large number of software packages that can be freely changed in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the applications that you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS

, you'll be able to select the Ubuntu OS on the order page. We are aware of the fact that some pieces of software have certain requirements with regard to the Operating System they're set up on, which means that you can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. In addition, you can choose if the VPS should come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll receive everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you will be able to do everything from your web browser, yet the root access is limited; while in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, so that you are able to set up anything freely due to the full root access that you will be given, yet the server management tasks can be performed using a console. Our system administrators will keep track of your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis if you add the optional Managed Services package that we offer.
