Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting really popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it can function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will discover a number of resources online. Among the key advantages of this Operating System is that it features numerous software packages that can be easily modified according to your needs and / or the requirements of the applications that you want 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 code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

With any of our VPS servers, you can decide on the Ubuntu Operating System from the order page. We are aware of the fact that some programs have particular requirements in terms of the Operating System they can be installed on, which means that you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. You can also select whether the VPS should include the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll have everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etcetera. software, and you can make everything from your online browser, but the root access will be restricted; whereas in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, which means that you are able to install anything freely due to the full root access which you'll be given, but the server management tasks will be done using a console. Our system administrators will keep track of your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu setup weekly if you add the optional Managed Services package which we offer.
